While waiting for my turn at the microwave at work today, I was having one of those mundane conversations comprised of “what in the world did we ever do before microwaves” and “it’s amazing how long one minute can seem”.
Nothing new there, but it got me thinking. What did we do before microwaves? I thought about my parents who both passed away about 25 years ago, and how they would be amazed if they could see all the changes that have taken place since then.
Here’s a few things that my parents never got to experience that are an integral part of my own life today:
2. Personal cell phones
3. Personal computers (laptops!)
4. The internet (and blogs!)
5. DVD players (or VCR’s for that matter!)
6. Satellite radio
8. Digital cameras
9. Sony eReader (or Kindle!)
I can’t help but wonder what will be on a that my children and grandchildren write someday!
