I just joined Skype this week. Hello, 2010. I am apparently 7 years late for the party since Skype was invented in 2003. I am late to many technology parties. For years my husband and I had a TV made of wood. With no remote. We finally got rid of it in 2006 before we got married. Yes, you read that right, a TV made of wood. Did we upgrade to a flat screen? No, no. But we did finally buy a flat screen in 2008. I also still have VHS tapes that I refuse to give up. Even though we bought a DVD player in 2007.
I had my first Skype session with a wardrobe client. Virtual consultations! How wonderful! Here are the reasons I like Skype:
You only have to dress the upper half of your body. Genius!
You don’t have to shower OR brush your teeth because you are working over the internet.
You get to hear how strange your voice sounds. It always weirds me out to hear my voice on a microphone.
You get to sound tech-savvy because you use words like Skyping.
I may seem to be dressed up here, but only the top half is fancy. I am sporting boxer shorts and slippers with my fancy top and necklace. If only every work day could be like this!
Do you Skype?
