Can email make it through all the wires to Iowa?

Posted by cjoshua15 on April 13, 2007

Okay, there is way too much geek in me.  My best friends son has been communicating with his best friend, whose parents decided they wanted to see how tall corn really grows when left to a field and God’s graces in the middle of Iowa, via cell phone and now letter mail with real stamps.  He was telling me today that he got some pictures and wanted to write a letter.  I mentioned I could set him up an email address if his mom was okay with it and she said that would be fine.  He got a little excited and then this grave look came across his face and in all seriousness he asked the following question:  Can an email fit in the wires and go all the way to Iowa?  I had just taken a drink of my tea and it just about spewed all over him because I laughed so hard.  The innocence of his question was real but I guess I didn’t expect him to be so serious.  He then asked if he emailed it tonight by 10pm when would it get delivered to his friends email.  I made sure I wasn’t drinking tea when he started speaking this time.   When I finally got him to understand that the Internet was open all the time like Wal-Mart he was so excited he couldn’t wait for me to get him an account set up.  Unfortunately for him, he is governed by the hours he is allowed to stay up so he will have to wait until tomorrow to try this new email world!
