do you remember when…?

remember when our elders always used to say, “i remember when i was a kid, that stuff was only a nickel!” i mean… you have to… that’s pretty much all we heard because of all the advancements in technology and transportation…

i sit back once in awhile and think about the things that i used to do… the options i never had and didn’t care about… here are some:

not knowing where i was (relied on my friends to know where we were going)… using landlines (phone numbers were 7 digits back in the day)… memorizing phone numbers (i knew all my homies’ and girlfriends’ numbers by heart… still know some to this day) making plans and sticking to them (because if you bailed you had no way to let them know)… making collect calls (but usually just saying “pick me up” instead of my name to avoid my parents getting charged the fee… that was sweet)… using the operator (dialing just zero)… writing letters (mostly pen pal crap at school)… skating from spot to spot (before i had a car)…

i mean, the list goes on… feel free (please) to put some up that you remember… it is sometimes comical and refreshing to think about…

we are so far ahead of ourselves now… it is a bit insane… i appreciate a lot of the advancements we have made but man… we are nuts…

peace and noLove
