When microwaves came out, I thought
That I would never buy one.
It took me quite a while before
I even dared to try one.

And when my husband went and bought
That costly first P.C.,
I viewed it as a waste and something
Of no use to me.

The same applied to cell phones;
I just couldn’t comprehend
How they’d become a part of life
On which I would depend.

I wonder what they’ll think of next – 
But likely, they’ll debut it
And, with my lack of foresight,
I am sure that I’ll pooh-pooh it!

    Why can't they just leave things alone. LIfes simpler that way. But truly it's one of those things. Tomorrows a brand new day. :)
