The Generation Gap Continues… Carsyn Didn’t Know What A Phonebook Was

Jac’s Phonebook Collection

Each generation gets easier and harder in some aspects. Take mine… I’ve never had to get up and turn the TV channel, always had a remote. I’ve always worn a seatbelt in the car, my Mom didn’t. You see where I’m going with this, right?!? How about a home phone… how many of you still have one? I sure don’t.

Yesterday, Carsyn, even thou she asks me about 317 questions per day, asked me one that stopped me in my tracks.

“Mommy, what’s the big book?”

It was a phonebook! Yes, a phonebook! A new, updated book had been dropped off by the mailbox and she noticed it when we were taking Clyde for her nightly walk.

I could not and still can’t believe that this child did not know what a phonebook was. But, when I got to thinking about it, I guess I understand why she doesn’t. I look everything up on my phone or on the computer. Are phonebooks going out of style and I didn’t even know it?!? Maybe so, who knows…

I will say this, if they do go out of style, how will we compliment a great singer?!? “She’s so great of a singer, I’d listen to her sing the phonebook!”

Maybe I’m overreacting (I’ve been know to do that a time or two, haha!). I guess I won’t use the books as firewood just yet.

So, the generation gap begins in my house. Looks like I’ll have to be more conscience of how I do things… it’s time to go old-school! Somebody hand me washboard and a bucket, it’s time to do the laundry! (Just kidding… I’d have no clue how to use that thing, ha!)
