Our Ancestors


When you look at it, we all have ancestors within the last 100 years that dressed funny, spoke funny, and ate really disgusting food. They probably smelled bad as well considering bathing took place once or twice a week and they cooked with wood and warmed their homes with wood of coal. See how far we've come?

But what will be said of us in 100 years?

They'd say for some strange reason, there seemed to be a shortage of belts...http://parents.berkeley.edu/advice/teens/sag.html

I'd take it easy on Walter if I were you. He may track down a certain someone's senior picture and post it on the internet.....

About me? They'll probably be saying "she was the ultimate Darwin Award" winner.

Lori, the point will be to shuffle around with your pants around your ankles within the next 20 years. It will be a form of human hobbling.

Actually the tall girl standing in the center is my mother's mother when she was in her teens.

TH, plead with Walter to do so...

Syd, you are a strong contestant, but you haven't won yet. Though please be assured that I will be saddened if you should go out in a Darwinian blaze of glory, but I will report on the incident with humor, as always.

The thing with those old pictures is that everyone always looks so grumpy and it's no wonder! If I had to wear all that stiff scratchy clothing I would be too.

In 100 years, they will say we dressed funny, spoke funny, ate disgusting food and - maybe - smelled funny (our overuse of perfumes, aftershave lotions, etc.)

Trish, cotton beats wool any day.

Beth, body sprays...yep you're right.

Hermit, I guess we all forget the ones living in the wood pile. Too funny...

They're going to take one look at my mother in that garish polyester paisley mumu and jiffypop hairdo from 1970 and think the people in your photo were the more evolved ones.
