A twenty-first century fairy tale

Old grumpy people like me do a lot of complaining about the twenty-first century. Too fast, too globalized, too connected, too distracted, too selfish, too dangerous, too stupid, too fake news.

And on and on and on...

But it's not all bad. What a shock!

Grumpy old people have been bitching about the new hotness since humans began to live long enough to get "old" somewhere between 200,000 and a million years ago. They've always been right about some things, and wrong about others. My generation isn't any different.

I'd have never been able to experience this lovely fairy tale if it weren't for the verdammt twenty-first century.

Most of you know the difference between a fairy tale and a sea story. Well, this is no $#!+. Seriously!



  1. Well, that would be a good reason not to have that program/machine in one's house.

    1. Max cuteness and humor and an interesting glimpse into parenting. The gadgets change, but parenting remains much the same. I was thinking, "yeah dad, make her send it back. good luck with that!" Lucky little girl.
