The other day I was helping at a conference and one of the children assisted me. We walked into a room and she exclaimed, “Wow, a chalkboard! I’ve never seen one before, just on TV!” Boy did I feel old!
If that wasn’t enough, my teenage assistant, Wynton, chatted with me while we waited for the next class of children. We discussed the flooring of our homes. I complained about out beige carpet and how impractical for our family. He questioned, “Carpet, what is that like? I’ve never had it!” Needless to say, I was left speechless and feeling ancient!
How about you, has a child made you feel old lately? Tell us your story.
Or maybe you are feeling young what is it that you’ve heard about but never seen?
