I'm getting old!

I never had a legitimate "when I was young..." or "back in my days..." story until last night. Uh-oh holy shit I think I'm getting old.

My sister MJ sent me this email, looks like my nephew Nathan is participating in a school fundraiser. Back in my days, I had to go around the neighborhood with a catalog and a piece of paper/pen. I'd go door to door and then I would have to fill out the orders on a master sheet. 4 or so weeks later I'd get a huge package from school and I'd have to hand deliver each purchase.

Nice to see that all of this is now done online. Look, each child has a number and a dedicated page/number. A database driven fundraising site!! So there's my first "Back in my day..." story!
