Entirely Too Digital

OK, you know you're too immersed in a digital world when you're doing something that has been done manually for centuries - and can only be done manually - and your brain tries to behave as if it's sitting in front of the computer.  This just happened to me:

I was putting away my laundry and a t-shirt which was folded (perfectly, of course) dropped off the top of the pile as I walked to my dresser.  This amazingly folded article of clothing became unraveled and started to tumble to the floor.  No word of a lie, my brain thought "CTRL - Z".

(for those of you who aren't familiar with the term, it's a keyboard shortcut - pressing the "Ctrl" key at the same time as "z" - that performs a very special action: UNDO)
