Recently, not long after burning myself grabbing a still-hot pot and then applying burn ointment onto my fingers, I had occasion to use my wife's laptop. When she saw I had a paper towel nearby and asked me why, I responded - "Because after I finish typing, I'm going to wipe down your mouse." As soon as that sentence left my mouth, I felt myself step into a virtual time machine.
Because, although most everyone in 2021 would understand my response, how far back in time would we have to travel for someone to instead say "huh?" "Wipe down your mouse?" How many other statements that we routinely utter these days would befuddle a listener just a few decades back? How about ..
"Has anyone seen my cell? Or ..
"What was the name of that app you told me about yesterday?" Or ..
"Google it, will you please? Why are you wasting time trying to remember?" Or..
"Text the directions to me. My GPS is offline."
Chime in here with a phrase or two that you guess might make a listener circa 1990 scratch their head.
