Back in the day…
Does it seem like time these days just flies by in a blur and ya don’t know whether you’re coming or going?! I used to laugh when the ‘old timers’ used to start off a conversation with … “back in the day…”
Well… I’m now finding myself starting off a bunch of my conversations that way!!! Heck I remember a time of being able to go to sleep at night with the doors open and just having the screen doors locked. I remember first getting cable and having to get up and walk over to the cable box and having to move the switch between channels and turn a dial to get the signal just right! Oh I could just go on and on….
This all comes up cause a long while back my youngest daughter was wanting to heat up some quiche to snack on. She was reading the heating directions and I overhear her say, “That long?” So I asked what the deal was and she was commenting on how long it would take to heat up the quiche… 1 minute and 30 seconds.
So a “back in the day” speech took off and I told her that I remember a time when TV dinners took 25 to sometimes 45 minutes just to cook!!! I’m surprised her teeth didn’t break when that jaw of hers hit the floor from shock!! (hahaha)
