Fun Before the Internet

How did people have fun before the internet?  We had fun doing things.  Often books were a priority and once started, we would continue until finished. I used to cook for my family while reading a book. We did have the internet but we used it only for business. People forget the true enjoyment of becoming involed in a good book. We also did things such as ride bikes.  The bike section in large department stores is not that big anymore.  It would be several rows and now it is barely even two.  As we didn’t own cars or weren’t allowed by our parents to use their vehicle, we walked everywhere.  We would save our money and go to the local soda shop for ice cream, a sundae, or an ice cream soda.  We would sit around with our friends and just chat.  One time with my girlfriends we did the “Locomotion” which was a song, across the street to the soda shop. We also went out for a slice of pizza. It was not delivered and truthfully tasted ten times better. I think primarily because real chefs from Italy made them. We also played card games and board games.  I still love both today. Back then the adults played poker with their friends.  Sometimes the adults would go out dancing on a Saturday night.  That was the best as my grandparents were always there and we would watch shows with dancing. Not to mention, her cooking was far superior to what I ate on a daily basis. She is the person who taught me how to cook. Now I am teaching my granddaughter. Saturday she learned about exact measurements, softening butter, and making egg whites. She also learned how to fold the egg whites into the batter. I showed her how to make frosting which for me has no measurements.  She liked it and was the official taste tester. Life was simpler in many ways and we all really did have real fun before the internet. I don’t know how many people will agree with me.
