Some perspective, and a good laugh
I watched this with my mum the other night and she was loosing it, meaning I hadn't seen her laugh that hard in forever. The phone bit was especially funny because my childhood (her current) phone number has three zeros in it, we were the last people we knew to get an answering machine in the 90s, and she still has a cream-coloured rotary phone in the basement!
And as I begin this week with the goal that I will reduce my time on facebook by at least 50% (meaning I'm only going to check it once or twice a day. Those of you not on the fbook train are like "Geez, this lady's hooked!"), it's good for me to remember that there was a time before all this technology we rely so heavily on, and that we had fun at that time too!
I also want to offer you at this time the HUGEST thank you for your recent comments that were so generous and really heart-warming, if I can use that term (does "heart-warming" just sound like the way you'd describe a documentary about someone who against all odds managed something magical?). I said "Please massage my bruised ego a bit" and you said "No problem!", and I couldn't be more thrilled.
