One of my favorite commercials growing up was this:
A ten-year-old boy goes off to sleep-away camp. His parents are home crying. The neighbor asks, "What's the matter? Do you miss your son?" They answer, "No, we can't program our VCR without him!" CUT TO: Parents go out and buy a new easy-to-program VCR. CUT AGAIN: Kid is reading a letter at camp and starts to cry. Friend says, "What's the matter? Are you homesick?" He answers, "No, but my parents don't need me anymore!"
This commercial really hit home! Time and time again, I would ask my Dad to tape a show only to come home and find out he had accidentally set it for AM instead of PM or he had had the TV set on the wrong channel and had recorded fuzz.
Now, I am the ancient imbecile. My kids are way ahead of me. At three and a half, my daughter had to show me how to take photos with my cell phone. And now, in kindergarten, she not only has a blog, but she got a vlog up!!!!
Boy, I'd better get with the program!
