The Charlston Today

Sometimes it feels like every new generation thinks they are the first to discover just about everything. From dancing to sex, the young generations coming up in the world feels like they are always the first… That’s because everything is so new and wonderful, you just can’t believe things as wonderful as dancing could have ever been discovered before!

At the same time, all the older generations are quite certain they did it better, “Back in the Day” and generation after generation we hear the same old rant, “Kids these days just….” You can fill in the blank however you like with that one…

Funny thing is, that’s the same thing the older generation said about them when they were young… Happens everytime…

Well, not over here at Monalle it doesn’t!!!

That ten percent uniqueness is what we like to focus on, largely because we just can’t believe how similar we all are!”

I found this little video which illustrates the point so perfectly I had to share it with you! So to all you youngsters, here’s what gramps was doing “back in the day”… And to old you older cats out there, don’t forget, that ‘back in the day’ you were no different then the youngsters are now…
