O for Old or D for Dinosaur?

I took Nicholas out to lunch today.  We ate and played Zeus on the Loose, and had a great time.  He won our little tournament and ice cream.

On the way home he started quizzing me on things that were/were not around when I was little.  I shocked him into total laughter with an answer.  How?

By telling him:  "We didn't even have internet when I was growing up.  If we wanted to know something, we had to go over to the bookshelf, pull an encyclopedia off, and look it up."

He was equally as shocked when I told him I remembered getting our first microwave and VCR.

I wonder if I should look for my picture in the O for Old or D for Dinosaur encyclopedia.  Sigh.
