This cracks me up when people (mostly my older family members) say this to me:
"Oh, did you email me? I only check my email like once a week or so."
Are they kidding?????
At some point over the last 2 years if I don't check my email every couple of hours I feel as if the sky may be falling and I won't even know!!! It has become my favorite form of communication because you can't get "stuck" on email when you're trying to cook dinner and help with the kid's homework like you can get "stuck" on the phone! There is never a "bad" time (too early or too late) to email someone. I can finish an entire conversation uninterrupted in an email.
It's a beautiful concept.
