"mama, in your time, did you have to use those lamps with kerosene?"
i absent-mindedly replied with a "yeah" ... (well, i really did when i was young and there's a power outage, we do get to use those kerosene lamps)
a while later ...
"mama, in your time, did you use those overhead projectors?"
again, absent-mindedly, "uh-huh" ... (well, most projectors are "overhead", right? even the ones in the movie theatres are "overhead")
during dinner ...
"mama, did you know, in your time, the first ever video game was created?"
now this i can't let go, so i replied, "wait a minute, are you trying to tell me something??? and who told you the first ever video game was created in my time? hey i wasn't even born yet when pong was created!!!"
(ok, i do know what the first video game is called ... but that doesn't mean i was already alive when it was created ... that's what i call discovery channel)
hmmmm now i wonder what could have triggered those questions ... could he be trying to imply something?
(and why am i explaining myself here?)
