My friend L talking to an 8 YO neighbor:
(I should mention that L is showing neighbor kid pictures of rotary dial phones on the Internet because said kid had no idea what he was talking about.)
L: No, seriously, there wasn't any Internet when I was a kid.
Kid: How did you do stuff?
L: I don't know, we just did.
Kid: Was there glass when you were a kid?
L: Hey, I'm not a thousand!
On this date: In 1789, the first American novel was published. Don't worry, you haven't heard of it.
