"It's quarter after 2," I said.
"What?" she said. "Quarter? Does that mean 20 or 25?"
|Can you tell the time?
Man. The times they are a-changing, right? Wrong. They already done did change and I been left behind, is more like it.
I remember drive-ins, rotary dial phones, actually answering the door when hearing a knock, and looking up a number in a phone book. I remember being amazed by this new-fangled thing called the internet. I remember getting the afternoon paper the day after a big game and reading about it, or looking up the score from the night before.
I remember going around to talk to people face to face, instead of sending an email or Facebook message. Wait. I actually did go around and talk to people in person last week, and it's going to pay off. So there - go retro, and get results.
The point is, the young person in question isn't dumb - we just live in a much different world. I just hope she's on time, wherever she is going.
