back in my day
when you wanted to type something you did it on a typewriter not a computer
and we were better for it.

*only because a typewriter doesn't lose power and lose all your data* *cries*

Back in my day..
Once night descended upon the land, folk locked their doors, closed their shutters, and made peace with their god.. as my whisper searched for those defiant souls who wished for something slightly darker..
And yessssss.. we were so much better for it.

Back in my day music had a melody and a pretty voice to sing a tune
instead of the loud obnoxious sounds that come from people now
and we was better for it

Back in my day, we had to go outside and play.  No computers in our house.  We could drink from the garden hose and run stomp in the mud puddles in our galoshes.

And we were so, so much better for it.

Back in my day..
When sleep whispered it's soft caress upon the soul and pulled the mind deep into it's realm of dreams, there weren't all these crazy distractions to keep the mind from a full, wonderful sleep..
Yes, oh yes, we were indeed better for it.

We used to get drunk by actually drinking the alcohol & not by shoving an O.B. up our crack

*yikes.. can't help but clench certain areas at that last*

Back in my day..
Phone numbers were memorized, not simply added to the growing dependency for our gadgets..
Despite the possible disagreement here, we were definitely better for it.

Lincoln Logs were the shit. And after playing with them you felt like you had all the knowledge you needed to build a real life fort. (That fort ends up crashing down on your head and you go to the hospital for stiches. Lesson learned.)
...and you were better for it!

(Razzz? Explain that please? O.o)  Back in my day kids were disciplined.  We knew how to mind. We didn't have a DS in our hands at age six or run all over the doc's office screaming because we didn't have it with us. We knew better than to show our butts and most of us were better for it.

(Since there is youth now that drenches a tampon in an alcoholic beverage & well... ::) It's not like I came up with it haha)

Back in my day...
Hip hop was still real, creative & fun to listen to, a movement against "the man" & not some money hungry punks who think that they are lyrical.
...and we were better for it (or I at least was)

back in my day country sounded like country, pop sounded like pop. The two were able to be told apart by more than a fake southern twang. Dunno if anyone was better for it but it irritates me bunghole like those tampons lol

Back in my day I searched caves with a beastly attack dog and a sturdy torch. The dog was my pet, the torch was a stick with a rag tied to it, unlit, and the caves were my front yard. We had imagination, didn't have everything built for us. And we know where tampons properly belonged hehe and we was better for it.

Cashiers HAD to know how to count back change correctly.  PLUS, they were courteous when you came to their check out and didn't act as though you were inconveniencing them by coming through their line....

...and we were definitely happier customers, if not also better for it.
