"When I was your age, I had to walk to ten miles to school, uphill, wearing felt socks!"
It turns out - that's a lie! My grandmother used to work at my dad's elementary school, so she drove him to school most days! And I've walked from his childhood home to his school... it's not ten miles. Maybe five, tops. The felt sock thing, though, is actually pretty accurate. It turns out that in rural Saskatchewan, people actually wore footwear that resembled the felt lining of Sorels. I think it's funny that the felt sock part is the true bit.
Then I started thinking about the things I could tell kids these days...
"When I was your age, Pluto was still a planet!"
"When I was your age, I used a TRS-80 computer, then a Commodore 64, then a Commodore 128! We saved our data on cassette tapes!"
"When I was your age, Saturday mornings had good cartoons!"
"When I was your age, there was no internet!"
"When I was your age, it was cool to wear legwarmers!" Wait... that's come back, hasn't it?
So what sorts of things did you do "when I was your age"?
