Seven Things You’ll Have To Explain To Your Kids One Day

Chip Douglas/Townsquare Media

Are you ready to feel really really old?  Here are seven things you’ll have to explain to your kids one day.  Enjoy . . . then cry.

1.)  Smoking and non-smoking sections in restaurants.  It’s all non-smoking now.

2.)  Why we used to buy maps, and how they were so hard to re-fold.  I’m not sure if I even still have a paper map anywhere.  I back up my Garmin with the GPS on my phone.

3.)  Taking a photo and not getting to see how it came out instantly.

4.)  Dialing star-69.  Who just called an hung up?

5.)  Taping a song off the radio so you could hear it whenever you want.  That’s what we have Youtube for now.

6.)  How the only way to get song lyrics was to hope the band or artist printed them inside the tape or CD liner notes.  Nowadays you can get any lyric you need online.

7.)  How you used to have your friends’ phone numbers MEMORIZED . . . and why you used to have to talk to their parents sometimes when you called them.

I would be interested in hearing any others that you may be thinking of.  Feel free to comment.
