Can You Imagine?
This may seem weird, but that's probably because it is. The other night we were sitting at our kitchen table having dinner - hamburgers & french fries. The strangest thought went through my head. "If George Washington were sitting here, we would have a LOT of explaining to do!"
It's amazing to think of all the things that have changed since the beginning of our country. I would have to explain:
2. Girls wear pants now - not billowing dresses with petticoats
3. We eat some meals with our fingers - no utensils
4. My husband's shorts are acceptable in public
6. Powdery white wigs are NOT popular anymore, people dye their hair to hide the white.
And the list goes on. Can you imagine coming back from then to now? The poor guy would have a brain overload in no time! But with so much "progress" in the last century, even a person from the early 1900s would have trouble comprehending everything.
Guess these types of thoughts happen due to lack of sleep. :)
