On three separate occasions yesterday I heard the term "old school."
The cashier at the grocery store - telling me about a conversation she had with a young person about computers. "What would you do if the computers stopped working?", he asked.
She replied, "I know how to go old school. I don't need computers."
I added dried cherries to my daughter's snack mix. I added a note to clarify that they were not raisins.
After school she asked me why I wrote a note when I could have just sent her a text.
She said, "You pack my lunch in a paper bag and you write notes."
"Mom, you're old school!"
Finally, at a meeting I attended that evening someone called out "That's old school."
Someone wanted to copy some information with a pen and paper when someone suggested,
"Just take a picture of it."
I am not ashamed to say that I like being "old school."
(It must be the artist in me.)
If you share my enthusiasm and want to practice being old school here are two places to check out.
