I’m watching the Yankees on TV last night. Becky, who does not have school in the morning, does whatever it is that she does on her laptop in her bedroom.
The Yanks win the game and clinch the World Series. As delighted as I am, my outward reaction is purposefully muted, on account of Kimmy and Natasha being long asleep by then in their beds.
Yet, 60 seconds later, Becky bounds down the stairs.
“Yankees won?” she asks.
“Yes, it just ended,” I reply, “How’d you know?”
“Facebook,” she shrugs. “Everyone I know just went ‘Yay! Yankees win!'”
Small things like that keep finding me awestruck by how far we progressed in the last decade or so in terms of information access.
