Old Folk School

You know you're getting old when you start using terms that your almost 21 year old daughter doesn't understand. Last night we had this conversation about her college classes starting up next week:

Mom: Are you going to get some new pencils and tablets for your class?

Daughter: Tablets?????

Mom: You know, pads of paper.

Daughter: mean spirals.

Mom: Well, yeah. But in my day those hadn't been invented yet and we had tablets.
