So, after checking out all three copies that I had, I only had the book on tape remaining. One of the kids said he’d take it and when he opened the case balked and said “um, a tape? Where can I play this?” And I said – your parents’ car? “No” A stereo at home? “No”
And then I almost said………wait for it……….
“Don’t you have a walk-man?”
I always thought I was so tech-savvy – I covet the iPhone, and I would love to buy a Chumby. So the thought that there are homes in this country that lack cassette players, not due to lack of funds but because of immense change in technology, really struck me.
I’m still reeling. (Unintentional pun but damn good, don’t you think?)
