  I Feel So Old...


I walked into my neighborhood Wal-Mart tonight and went to the electronics section to buy an ink cartridge for my printer. I walked up to the guy in the blue vest,

"Hi, Where's your printer ribbons?"
"What?"
"Uhhh....I mean printer cartridges..."
"Yeah, that's funny. I thought you had a really old computer, Ha, Ha...behind the video games.."

I almost told him that my Commodore 64 has a real five and a quarter inch floppy drive, 1200 baud modem, and a Near Letter Quality Epson Dot-Matrix printer, thank you very much, but I didn't think he'd get the irony.

Man, I feel old..

Thanks for reading,

AC

My 80-86 ran up until 2000 when I graduated from college--it woulda kept going too if it hadn't been so hot that summer. I was living in my parents' attic with no air conditioning. One day it just... fried.
