Just a Quick Mail Check
You just awake... your eyes are still shut
Still can't quite focus.....still draggin your butt
You know you need coffee......can taste that first sip
You wait for the maker.....and put the mug to your lip

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

The feeling is warm.... just what you need
But you know you need more....and it's something to read
The paper you say??? no...don't think so.. not it...
It's much more exciting... you cant wait to "click"...

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

You boot up your puter.......you click that icon...
Can't keep from grinning.... you're really turned on!
When the voice says "Welcome"...your heart skips a beat!!
You know you're addicted....all the friends that you'll meet.

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

And then you see it.......you wait with a stare....
The mail box lights up!! "you've got mail" waiting there!!
OH.. what a feeling!!.... you look with delight!
You hoped you'd have mail.... and you knew you were right!!

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

So you go thru the mail..... knowing this is the "Best"..
Reading this, reading that....as you go thru the rest.
Some you give the "delete" key....others get your first click
You know you must hurry......you gotta be quick!

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

It is then that you hear it.... You can't wait to see
Your heart gets a flutter... whose name will it be?
And then there it is..... covering part of the screen
The sweet little sound....Oh..you know what that means!!!

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

"Quick mail check" you promised....you said in your mind.
But you just got an IM.... and you're pressed for time!
You know that you want to.... and respond you will
So you stop what you're doing.. and go for the thrill!

Just a Quick Mail Check Photo

You "LOL" and "BRB", give kisses and hugs..
You type and send words... refilling your mug
You give your good friend your attention and time
So that quick little mail check... turns to hours online!

Does this ever happen to you?

 This poem seems geared to AOL users... how 20th century. Does anyone use AOL anymore? 

But yeah... my "quick checks" do become hours, especially on the weekend.

Take sip of coffee and wait to find out if I get 25 Qbucks or 75 Qbucks.........

I usually like to check my phone messages first, that is where all the best Interaction is.......

You described me perfectly.   All i get in snail mail is bills and junk mail, so i have no interest there.  Now my E mail is where my friends are and my laughs for the day.  Sorry to say the Q is not a priority anymore.

Does anyone really get that excited about email anymore?  I remember it was fun back in 1996 when AOL was new, but now its the most annoying thing having to delete my inbox of 1,000 messages every month.

#20 | 1693 days ago

I'm guilty of it at times ... other times I'm able to jump on, delete 400 spam messages, read the 1-2 real messages, and keep on trucking with my day. 
Then again, I HAVE found myself on the Q and/or messenger until the wee hours of the morning on my days off (mostly  ).

I must be the odd one out...i dont get emails, i dont IM and i dont spend much time on the Q. I check polls post a comment or two then leave , maybe online for an hour tops and only couple of days a week.  Am is using this thing right.

Tap tap tap hello is anyone out there ...hello hello heellllooooooo Dam echo.
#22 | 1693 days ago

 I am exactly the opposite. I hate talking on the phone, because then I feel like I have to sit down and give the other person my full attention and can't do anything else... whereas at the computer, IM me and I'll reply amidst doing many other things... and you just learn to accept delays in conversation

Healthiest is a good way of looking at it , but there are a few other things it can be called.

Ditto. I can't remeber the last time I shut my computer off when I wasn't installing something that required a reboot or whatever. Plus i usually check all my e-mail accounts on my phone, like constantly. lol

Agree with Mr. Rogers, I have tons of msgs right now and I have no intention to read them. Sometimes reading the subject I know what it's about, can be one of  those repeated cheesy e-mails with Powerpoint presentations attached,  chains that I never forward, same old jokes, I think I read less than 10% of my e-mails. If I see the subject is not a personal comment from one of my friends I log out and do something the most of times is the Q.

I have all my email accounts coming through my phone, so I keep up with those that way.. I have been known to get wrapped up on messenger and not even realize what time it is

I always start with the sports highlights, the weather...why I have no idea cause it's still flippin freezing...look at my offline messages, talk to a few friends then it's right to the Q. Guess y'all could say I'm addicted... .  My computer is never turned off.
