Blast from the Past (Otherwise known as the Swiss Present)

The other day, my husband was investigating the latest technology in the local Swiss stores when he saw a display of Discmans.

“Can you believe they still sell those?” he said, “They use so many batteries not to mention they’re totally and completely outdated.”

“Well, what do you expect from a country that didn’t let women vote until 1971?” I said, always looking for a way to throw in this amazing fact. But then I reconsidered. “Well, maybe it’s just for the old people that they still sell those.”

But today on the tram, I look over and see a man in his 30s listening to music on nothing other than a Discman. I almost laughed as I put away my iPod Shuffle and got off the tram, shaking my head the entire way to the office.
