My dad celebrated his birthday this week. Last night he brought over his new Ipod Nano for us to admire. But really he brought it over so we could show him how to use it.
He studied it for a moment and then asked, “Where does the music come out? How do you hear it?”
He is not that old. He should know better.
Which reminded me…
Of the time when I was in college and was test driving cars. I took one that I liked to my Papa’s house so that he could look it over. It had a CD player in the dash. (Um, that sentence made me sound geriatric.) He was certain that the slot was made for 45 speed records. He was so sure that he sent Nannie inside to get him a 45.
By the way, the speed at which she returned in the early 1990s with a 45 speed record was astonishing.
He took the 45 and tried cramming it in my dash. More than once. He also tried more than one 45.
And then he decided that the dash must’ve been made wrong.
Which makes me wonder…
When will technology pass me so fast that I never saw it coming?
And I know you are all thinking that perhaps it already has with this whole Mac mess and you are possibly correct.
