Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous.
Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on.
Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear that dial-up tone, can't you? The patience it took to load even a single picture was actually a super power. Now, if my phone doesn't immediately load a page, I get so annoyed. We've become spoiled by these advances, but that doesn't mean we can't look back and reminisce about our past.
These statements were things we said a lot back in the good ol' days when we were young, but probably haven't thought about it in a while.
1. Please can I use the internet? I need to feed my Neopets
2. Mom, do you know where the Kool-Aid pitcher is?
3. Sorry, can't take a picture I have no film
4. Aw crap, they didn't rewind the movie!
5. I'll talk to you tonight on MSN Messenger!
6. Hey, cool rat tail!

10. Mom, I'll be there in a second! I can't look away from the TV, I need to know what's coming up on Nickelodeon, I've missed it like, three times already!

19. I just need to make a title page for my book report, but I can't decide which Word Art to use...
