When we were young
You know how the older folk always say “When we were young …” I was thinking about that tonight as we were once again blessed with being the chosen ones to go without power.
(Which I must say is driving me nuts, since they seem to “save power” exactly when it’s time to make lunch / dinner. When people are on their way home and traffic lights are kinda important to keep the traffic flowing.)
My folks used to say “When we were young there was no electricity”
Now we will get to say to our kids: “When we were young we always had electricity”
Sad that, don’t you think?
