THINGS I LEARNED DURING DINNER WITH 3 SEPTUAGENARIANS
What I learned from minding my elders today.
- •Cars used to not have blinkers or turn signalsI feel like I should have known this? Apparently people would signal if they were turning by sticking their arms out of the window and doing bike turn signals.
- •There used to be things called "Trousseau Teas"These were parties were girls would ceremoniously open their trousseaus, or "hope chests", a few days before they got married.
- •It used to be possible that there were some Americans so rural they could reach young adulthood and have never seen an escalator.This is a true thing that one of them experienced.
- •Swiss chard is actually pretty good 👍🏻Basically more grown-up spinach.
