Re: A Modern Day Take On Getting Old. feel my comments are scolding??
How is that?

Yes I am 14 in my head....but it is the fourteen I was when I WAS fourteen.
Today’s Fourteen year olds are more like 18.

And how do I know that I would find no use for these new fangled things? I can access and read I think I DO try to learn about them
And, I suppose it is by seeing others using them.....and feeling that I would not want to be doing what they are doing.
What use have I for a smart phone?......when there is no one who would want to ring me....and it would sit in the bottom of my bag unused, very likely with a dead battery. Yes...I know they do other things besides text and make calls....but do I want to be doing those other things on the hoof? Is it necessary for me to do these things while out and about? they can wait until I get home and I can use my other new fangled devices to do them in the privacy of my home.

For those who have need of them, they must be a boon.

I am ready, willing and able to master the things which make my life better.
I do not necessarily think I need these gadgets improve my life.
