In my day
~Screen time was when my mom booted me out the screen door and told me to come back when the streetlights were on.
~Gaming was when all the neighborhood kids played kick the can or met up at the playground.
~Filtered water was from a hose. It had a very distinct tin taste but we still drank it!
~Hotspot was baking in the summer sun on the pavement with baby oil.
~Itunes was a cassette tape recorded off the radio missing the first few seconds of the song. Usually played on a boom box the size of a carry-on suitcase.
~Earbuds were hats made by your grandma that your mom made you wear in the winter.
~Tiny house movement was a fort made in the living room with chairs and blankets.
~Binge watching was Saturday morning cartoons, Baba Papa’s, Captian Bob, Davey and Goliath, Superfriends and Bugs Bunny. Again all before you mom invoked the screen time rule.
~Remote Control TV was the youngest kid being made to adjust the rabbit ears to get a better signal on the 5 channels you actually got.
~Lunchables were peanut butter and fluff or baloney on wonder bread. Usually smooshed from being in a brown paper sack all day.
~An uber was piling into the back of the pickup truck bouncing down the road.
Those were some GREAT days.
