As the years have passed, it’s taken me a bit to get used to seeing people born after I was:
- being my employer and pastor
- getting elected my president
- appointed to the College of Cardinals
There are others, but these are the most recent that stick in my mind. I was watching a bit of the Olympics. It strikes me that nearly all these competitors are young/old enough to be my children.
On the other side, my wife and I were watching one of the Thin Man movies last night. There were a handful of elderly characters in the film, and I remarked that they looked old enough to have been born during the War Between The States. Talkies are now just a bit older than those actors.
What would they think of tablet computers, I wonder. They probably didn’t wonder what future generations would think of the drinking.
