You Get Old, Then Shit Confuses You.


My parents are getting to that age when technology has begun to defeat them. When considering the ever-expansive technological world we live in, it’s depressingly portentous of what may be the shape of things to come. The question I ask to myself is “Since I have been submerged in the world of technology since a little kid, will it be mandatory and given that I keep up?” or “Is technological defeat inevitable for everyone past a certain age [for the most part] and given how densely seated in technology we are, my generation will eventually be even more lost?”

I’m not sure.

What I do know is that I’ve heard the beeping of them trying to program their GPS for twenty minutes, a silent heartbeat of futility repeating from upstairs.
