Back in the day, I’d go through the first dozen-or-so blank checks in our family checkbook at January’s beginning just to write in the digits applicable to our new calendar year.

Now, I’m not even sure I could find the checkbook.

New Year’s Day, in fact, I wanted to buy something I found online. I got to the ‘shopping cart’ part of the deal and was prepared to enter my credit card details, and then saw the option to send them my money through Apple Pay. I vaguely remembered setting up that particular option when I got an iPhone a couple of years ago, and I thought, “Hey, it’s 2022, I’ll try this newfangled way of paying.”

My phone vibrated with a bouncy little icon telling me to double-click to pay. I heard the immediate ‘ding’ of success and before I knew it had e-mail confirmation of my order and its promise of delivery within 24 hours.
