A Colourful View Of History

| Related | January 25, 2016

(I’m sitting with my eight-year-old daughter while I update the story I’m writing. She is doing her own thing, but watching me at the same time.)

Daughter: “Mum, how come you’re a fast typer?”

Me: “I don’t know, [Daughter]. I just taught myself, was something I picked up easy. I didn’t really use a computer properly till I was about 14.”

Daughter: “Woah… really? That’s not fair.”

Me: “They just didn’t have them about as much when I was your age. Not like they have them today.”

Daughter: “So did they have colour TV when you were a kid, too?”

Me: “…Yes. Yes, they did.”

(I’m 31!)
