There are days when I wish I could flip the calendar back to my care free youth. My worries were whether I got a comfortable spot to nurse at Momma’s dinner table, how long I should stay awake between naps, and if my brothers and sisters were told they were “the cutest puppy” more times than me. Ahhhhhh … Those were the days.
If you ever think you’d like to hop in a time machine and travel backwards, some of the following questions might help you decide.
Do you remember when there were no cell phones? No way to call for help if your car broke down versus no way for the boss to check on you or disturb your weekend. Which do you prefer?
Do you remember kick the can? Do you think that game was better for your kids than Pokemon?
Do you remember when fresh meat and vegetables were really fresh? Do you prefer picking veggies you raised in your organic garden to picking up preserved veggies in plastic wrap from a grocery counter?
Do you miss reading the morning newspaper or prefer watching TV news each AM?
Do you long for the day when “Clinton” was best known as a town in Tennessee and “Trump” was a term used when playing bridge?
