Things we don’t say anymore…

The other day my kids surprised me when they saw an image of an envelope on a piece of paper I had and immediately said "look Daddy - email" I started to think about a lot of other things that they will never know about and came up with this list of things we don't say anymore. Feel free to add to it. "Smoking please" - don't even think about it. "Can I have a coffee please?" - Nope. Only a double tall mocha with cream and vanilla will do now. "Who would know that?" - Google does... "Do you have any stamps?" - what are they? "Does it play 45's as well?" - Olden day iPods. "Did you read about (whatever) in the paper today?" - only the over 50's...sometimes! "Let's rent a video" - olden day iPods (again) "Do you have an Atari?" - just old... "There's no money in the Internet" - my uncles sage advice to me in the mid 1990's. (Goes with my fathers wise statement that we would never fill the 20m hard drive on our 286 PC - even if we tried!) And the biggest change to routine in my lifetime... "Of course I'm at home. How else could I answer the phone?" - remember that...big things attached to the wall with a dial on the front. Wow...
