- I remembered when gas was $0.99/gallon.
- I took typing in middle school with a real typewriter. My kids have never seen a real typewriter. I haven't seen one in a long time either, other than on the internet.
- My kids saw an old CRT TV with knobs and rabbit ears for antennas and asked me what it was. I told them that it was a TV. They didn't believe me and thought it looked like a robot.
- Then they asked me what were the knobs about. I told them that it was to control the volume and the channels. They asked me where is the remote control. I told them that back then, you actually have to get out of your chair to change the volume and the channels. My daughter responded with, "Momma, are you being silly?" and followed with a giggle.
- I remembered when milk was $0.99/gallon.
- I remembered using the old rotary dial telephone. Then there was the Motorola cell phone that was the size of a brick. I thought it was so cool just to be able to use one.
- I remembered when everyone used to dress up just to fly on an airplane.
- I encountered someone who didn't know cursive. After some reading on the internet, a lot of schools are not teaching cursive anymore. Really? Cursive was required when I went to school.
- I have trouble keeping up with the social media jargon and the hashtag this or that. I have to google them from time to time just to know what people are talking about.
- I type faster on a keyboard than I can text.
- I remembered the Space Shuttle program, from watching it on TV to actually going to Florida to watch it in person. The rovers and space station are cool too, but there's just something about the space shuttle that makes you dream.
I'm sure that there are more signs that I'm getting old, but I don't remember them because (you know) I'm getting old...
