You laugh at people with 14.4 baud modems.

You start using smileys in your snail mail.

You find yourself typing "com" after every period when using a word

You can't call your mother because she doesn't have a modem.

You check your mail. It says "no new messages." So you check it again.

You don't know what gender three of your closest friends are, because they have neutral screennames and you never bothered to ask.

You move into a new house and decide to Netscape before you Landscape

You tell the cab driver you live at

You start tilting your head sideways to smile.
