Gmail, Je T’aime

My parents used to scoff at the amount of time I spent staring at a screen and pecking at a keyboard. They still do. “Look, he’s on a date with his girlfriend!” Dad says when he feels especially witty or justified enough to equate my time online to a lack of a significant other.

Well, Pop, you’ll be glad to know that I’m in the healthiest relationship of my life. My crush is fast and easy to use. She has plenty of capacity for storage, even for my most prodigious needs. She responds to orders, acquiesces to my every demand and never loses anything. She’s a web-hosted, Ajax-based, beta version of a free e-mail service.

She goes by Gmail. Her last name may soon be Cohen.
