A simple conversation years ago....
"Hi Brenda, Its me... you wanna go to the movies tonight?"
"Sure, Which one?"
"Oh the new one with the alien that teams up with Bigfoot"
"HAHA, sure sounds like fun! What time?"
"It starts at 8 so lets meet up at 7:30 so we can get popcorn"
"Ok, see ya then!"
BUZZ BUZZ Text buzzes in while glued to snap chat...

This afternoon I wanted to take my kids to the movies. We planned on a 4:15 showing of Jumanji and then maybe a bite to eat. We went to two theaters and all the shows were sold out for today. Then the young woman behind the ticket counter said most people get their tickets on line.
Of Course I knew that, but weeks ago or even this morning I did not know I wanted to take the kids to the movies.
So there is no such thing as a spontaneous"Hey lets go see that new movie!"
Its now "Hey, lets go to the movies in three months!"
We recently went to Disney world and found out that now you can reserve your rides at the parks weeks ahead of time...what the what? I'm supposed to know what I will feel like riding weeks and weeks in advance? I cant even decide whats for dinner in ten minutes ( darn it and here I am typing away)
But you get me right? am I the only one who finds this weird? am I ? Or have I turned into that old person who says "well, in my day"
or yells at the neighborhood kids to "Get off my lawn!"
I would really like to read your take on this
