The cutest thing

It always amuses me to no end when I see my mom getting interested
in the latest technological trends. As I was meeting my parents and sister at
the airport last weekend, my mom recounted how my sister almost lost her
Ipod before they took the flight to DC from Amman.

My first reaction was: "Mom, you know what an Ipod is? Impressive."

"Of course I do!" said my mom sounding offended. "And I know Facebook as well," she added.

Is that not just so cute? It seems that facebook is more embedded in Jordanian life than I thought. Fascinating!

  1. My mom asked us last week how she can see the stuff on Facebook, and wanted us to help her get an account!! I’m not sure that’s cute =P

  2. Wow, and I thought it was amazing that my mother sent an email with an attachment, but facebook knowledge, most impressive. Got to love the previous generation.

  3. Ana my mom is trying to learn a few things about The internet, she made her own email, started chatting with her other sisters in diff countries, but i see her happy because she gets connected with her family through the internet.

  4. I don’t “get” facebook, I guess. I created an account and then I couldn’t find a single thing I wanted to do with it! Everyone I’m in contact with online, I use chat programs or e-mails. What am I missing? There must be something facebook does that makes it so popular, but I can’t figure it out! And I’m not that old!

    Natasha, it is cute about your Mom 🙂

    My grandfather downloads music and movies from “pirate” sites, and he’s in his late 80s. It feel so odd asking him for advice about getting bootleg stuff :O

  5. Too cute indeed! 🙂

    My mom is a computer pro though and there are things I learn from her rather than vice versa. I like it this way 🙂
