What, me worry?

I was entering my date of birth on the computer when Peter walked up behind me.

"You were born in 1969?  So you lived in the 80's?" he questioned.

"I sure did!"

"And people wore parachute pants back then didn't they?"

"Yes, but I never did," I said shuddering at the mere thought.

"And there was a video game with a triangle that shot at big slow moving rocks?"

"Ah, yes!  Asteroids!"  I used to love asteroids on the Atari.

"And  Care Bears?  What were those things?"

"Those were cute stuffed animals from a cartoon series.  Where did you learn about all of this stuff?" I questioned, impressed with his knowledge of the eighties. 

"Mad TV"  was his answer.

Alfred E. Newman - teaching history since 1954.


What, me worry?
