When I Was Your Age

2nd February 2003

Every year, someone sends me the list of stuff that this year’s incoming high school freshmen won’t remember. I know it’s supposed to make me feel old, but usually it just makes me feel sorry for them. This year’s sigh-inducing items:

  • Roller skating has always meant inline for them.
  • They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter.
  • Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
  • Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
