When I Was Your Age

A Poem By KatieSara // 4/20/2010

When I was your age we used video tapes
TVs were square and fat
We had to rewind after every viewing
You should see how long it took to do THAT

You'd say the video games were primitive
DVDs were strange and new
Cell phones didn't have all those neat gadgets
Kids your age who owned them were few

iPods hadn't shown up yet
But Furbies were all the rage
The cool kids played with Polly Pocket
Gameboy was a fave

My dear little boy, now you know,
I've told you how we played.
I hope I've answered your question,
"How did you have fun in those days?"



haha that is sooo cool! and true :)

I used to have volumes of tapes with my favorite shows on them.... and I played with a Raggedy Ann doll-- not those awful Bratz things. :P Or the half-clothed Barbies..... Mine wore ball-gowns. :)
