On Christmas Eve, my older grandchild, saw a bottle/can opener on the kitchen counter.
He said, "Now I have a question for you grandma, a long pause, what is this?" He was holding the green bottle opener.
I said, "John that is a bottle opener."
This grandchild has been camping out for almost two years to win a Scouting Badge for you guessed it camping.
He responded with, "How do you use it?"
I proceeded to show him by opening a bottle of Sprecher Root Beer.
Oooohhhhh, he replied. " I just twist and turn."
Out of the mouths of babes.
It is such a joy seeing a 13 year old boy so innocent; but it also reminds me that times are changing. Things that were used in my lifetime are disappearing.
Out with the old. In with new.
And so it is.
FYI: I will keep on using my green bottle opener because my hands aren't strong enough to twist and turn. However, my grandchildren will keep on twisting and turning.
I wonder what will come after their generation.
