21st Century Peeps

Vinyl records  to tapes–tapes to CD’s–I’m trying to keep up.    My very vocal resistance to the computer has turned into an unhealthy obsession. I can no longer live without my wireless phone;  I even text on a regular basis…  Because the hand-writing is on the wall, I’m reluctantly replacing my video collection with DVD’s–just in time for the DVD’s to be out-dated by Blue Ray; and because we had to, we made the switch from analog to digital and one step further–to high-def.  Sigh.  

For a resistant matron, I thought I was doing fairly well.   But I’m having a bit of trouble getting used to orange and green Peeps!  When they began making Starburst Fruit Chew  jelly beans, I thought that was an improvement.  But orange Peeps?  Pink I could handle…being a “cottage” gal and all…  Even the light green is sorta seasonal…  Tell me, do they taste like orange marshmallow?  That might be interesting.  I think I’m getting too old for this.

  1. What drives me nuts are the changes in packaging.
    There’s something so comforting about reaching out for a beloved chocolate bar in its old familiar wrapping!
