Let’s pretend automobile drivers crank up their windows by hand. And wing windows are still in fashion.
Let’s pretend there are only three television channels to choose from, all of which require sophisticated rabbit-ear adjustments. And aluminum foil is still a viable crutch.
Let’s pretend our yellow telephone is on the wall in the kitchen, with only a six-foot cord to maneuver.
Let’s pretend little children are taught cursive in school, with those thin blue lines on the paper to help the boys stay on course.
Let’s pretend we go to the drive-in and watch westerns, where love scenes end with a kiss.
Let’s pretend kids ride their one-gear bikes to football practice without any parental assistance.
Let’s pretend we watch our morning coffee percolate rather than drip-drip-drip.
How wonderful it is we now live in such an advanced society.
Or is it?
