BACK IN THE DAY


What’s your “back in the day we”

There was a phone book. We had to memorize phone numbers! Good luck now! I only know my parents.

There was rotary phone. Or if you were lucky you had a cordless and if you were really lucky you had caller ID! Good luck knowing who is calling you.

Dial up internet. Ugh!

Cassettes! Rewind and fast forward. And you needed a pencil to wind up the tape if it became tangled!

We had to play outside! We had to entertain ourselves. If we even thought about bugging our parents because we were bored? Especially when there was company? Do not even go there!

Chores! Couldn’t do anything until we were done our chores!

We walked everywhere! Especially in -30C

There were pay phones and good luck getting a hold of your parents when you wanted to get a ride home from the mall. They were rarely home!

PVR/DVR? We watched and recorded our shows on vhs and played it on VCR. That was a hassle. So happy When DVDs came out.

I miss my record player, my stirrups and leg warmers!
