Z is working on a science project that covers innovations. While discussing the advent of mobile phones, texting, the internet, and email - he suddenly froze.
"How did people communicate before mobile phones?"
"We waited until we got to our destination."
Wow. Maybe someday I'll blow his mind and tell him about tv that you can't pause (and came only in black and white - with three channels and a roof antenna), phones that all have cords, and music spinning on a big black vinyl record.
Suddenly it makes more sense that I need reading glasses.
