Am I That Old?
We have two computers in our house, and they are both on an L-shaped desk. A few weeks ago I was working at my computer, and Junie was playing a game on Matt's computer right next to me. Junie was playing a game called "Toon Town" which is one of her favorite games. In the midst of her playing she turned to me and said this:
Junie: Mommy, did you used to play this game when you were a kid?
Me: (thinking what a cute question) no, that game didn't exist when I was a kid.
Junie: What games did you play on the computer?
Me: We didn't have one, so I didn't play any games on the computer
Junie: Why didn't you have a computer?
Me: We didn't need one. Most people didn't have computers when I was a kid.
Junie: (her exact words) You mean you lived way back then away when people didn't have computers?
Me: Some people had computers, but most people didn't need them. The Internet didn't exist yet.
Junie: Does that mean that you're really old and you're going to die pretty soon?
