Ann Ku and Google
Google has become one of the most popular engines today. So popular that it has become a verb.
Before I meet someone I haven't met face-to-face, I'd "google" to get prepared. After I meet someone who seems interesting, I'd "google" to confirm his/her identity.
Googling yourself has become a favourite pastime, to find out how popular you are.
I google old boyfriends to find out what they're up to. But there are still some friends that don't appear on google at all.
I forget that not everyone is online. Some people might have very interesting and rewarding lives --- off-line. Outside of cyberspace, people can still carry on --- as prior to the Internet age. So why should I expect to find classmates who have married and become full-time moms to be found on the Web?
Equally, I am sure some of my old classmates have tried to google my name "Ann Ku" and come to the same conclusion. Where did Ann Ku go?
I've simply added an e to my first name so that I can be found ---- on Google.
