The One Where I Sound Like an Old Fart

Teen Angel has this rockin' hot car stereo that she and her dad bought a few weeks ago. It flips around and does all kinds of tricks.And bumps and thumps. Always with the bumping and thumping she is. And it has cool little pictures that wave across the front when it's playing, including these swimming dolphins who swam too fast for me to get a picture of them.It sounds great. Looks great. It even feels great when it's vibrating your ear lobes. The only problem is...I can't seem to operate it. It's too complicated for me. It doesn't like my iPod. I can't get it to play a CD, and I can't get it to switch modes with a flick of the button like Teen Angel can. And when I caught myself last week fussing with it and whining about how stereos used to not be so complicated, I had a slight panic attack. Because oy vey, what's next, comfortable shoes and a panty girdle from the Sears catalog???

It is alarming when we see our inner old far creeping out. Honestly.

Maybe we're just tired.

LOL, spandex is next not girdles. Its hard to stay on top of technology these days. It makes you feel so dumb when a kid can make something work in a flash and you just spent two hours trying to figure it out.
