Digital to Analog

I emailed a one of my older relatives a question the other day. After getting no reply I called her up to ask if she had received my email.

"No dearie, I haven't gotten your email. I'll do it next time I turn on that computer."

A few days later she called and left a message on my voicemail, telling me she had replied to my "mail message". After checking my email, and getting no reply, I gave her a call back.

"No dearie. I printed your email out and wrote the answer on the printout. But don't worry, I posted it this morning so you should have it by the end of the week."

Sure enough, a few days later Canada Post delivered my reply.

So that's what it was like in the old days...
