Them & Us

Most of the time I like young people, I even gave birth to one!

But I also remember the day when:

“grass” was mowed,

“coke” was a cold drink,

“pot” was something your mother cooked in and

“rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.

“Aids” were helpers in the School Principal’s office,

“chip” meant a piece of wood,

“hardware” was found in a hardware shop and

“software” wasn’t even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap…

Today we might have television, jet planes, space travel, man has walked on the Moon, spaceships have visited Mars, we even have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing etc. We didn’t have those things when we were young; so we invented them,

Now what the hell are you doing for the next generation??
