There has been a lot of talk lately about social networking. It got me thinking about how much the world has changed since I was a child, and even more since my parents were children. (the cute little baby girl in this picture is my mom!)
Both of my parents have been gone for about twenty-five years and they wouldn’t recognize much of what we find common in our lives today. Here are some sentences that I came up with that my parents would not know the meaning of if they could somehow come back for a day (oh how sweet that would be).
- She is one of my Facebook friends.
- Are you on Twitter yet?
- I really enjoy blogging.
- I’ll send her a text.
- I will IM her.
- Did you see that on You Tube?
- Don’t worry, I still have two bars left.
There are so many more things that would be foreign to anyone who had not been involved in our day-to-day life over the past twenty-five years or so. It’s hard to imagine what kind of changes the next few decades will bring.
Can you come up with any more sentences that would be foreign to someone from twenty-five years in the past?
