Ignorance Is Bliss?

A few years ago (maybe 20 or so) I was told that one of my daughters had received a CD from her boy friend. I can remember being really impressed. Wow! a Certificate of Deposit, this guy could be a "keeper". Up until this point my criteria had been "how many tractors did the boys family own". I soon learned, how much I had to learn.

It hasn't stopped! This ol' man is even more ignorant today. I need to schedule a training (or retraining) session from my grand daughters. The following is a partial list of what I should find out about:

HDTV
LCD
Plasma
MP3
Bluetooth
GPS
Wii
Ear Buds

....Or can I just forget the whole thing? I can remember my difficult transition from typewriter to computer....pressure cooker to microwave.....open window to AC.....inter tubes to tubeless tires....on and on and on.....Right now I am thinking "ignorance is bliss".

I'm with you. Except, I am one-up on ya.

Ear buds.

I sub at high school. I am not a REAL teacher so therefore am not TEACHING. I babysit...you should hear those teenagers when I say that. So...if they want to listen to their MP3 or iPod, I tell them it's okay, but put their earbuds in. I got a "Huh?" Made me feel so superior!

I am still trying to figure all that out too. Then there is: LOL, ROFL, ROFLMHO, and stuff like that. I don't even know if I got those right or not except for LOL. That one I know.
