So, last night, after dinner, I was still sitting at the table with my Dad. And my Mom comes over with a little old cassette recorded. She puts batteries in it and then plays whatever is on the tape. It's music, so I say,
'What's that?' - meaning, what's the music. My Dad's answer:
'A tape recorder.' *dead, silent shock*
'Oh my God, how stupid do you think I am?!? I *know* it's a tape recorder! I'm not that technologically ignorant! You think I'm living in the stone age, don't you!' meanwhile, all four of us are laughing hysterically!
'I didn't know! I didn't know if you'd ever seen one! Everything's digital now!'
'I still now what a cassette is! I know what a VHS is too! And a Beta! Atari!'
