Are you a dinosaur?

November 17, 2014 by Comments

I’m freaking out because….

I am a dinosaur on the verge of extinction.  And so is everyone else in my generation.  And no amount of plastic surgery or botox or yoga classes is going to change this: we are the last generation of humans to remember pre-computer/cell phone times.  Once my contemporaries and I recycle back to dust, NO ONE will ever know what it was like to be “un-plugged.”  Whoa.

Does that freak anyone out the way it does for me? In a good kind of way…I think?

What do I remember and have experienced that the next generation never will?  Here’s a short list – feel free to add on.

  1. word processors and white out – 10 hours to write and edit a paper was such a pain in the ass!
  2. traveling to and fro without a cell phone  – couldn’t call mom and dad when I needed cash or a ride – met some cool people when I had to rely on the kindness of strangers
  3. only 10 or so tv stations – gotta admit I like the current options
  4. speaking to people without being interrupted by a cell phone
  5. no facebook or twitter – couldn’t chat with friends all over the world when I was bored and lonely at home on a Saturday nite
  6. a lot less electromagnectic energy messing up my physical system
  7. And last but not least (and totally irrelevant to my pre-computer theme), 2 slices of pizza and a soda for a buck
