    Your 10 year old daughter asks you if you grew up without TV.

    Thanks, that was funny.

    My kids (5 and 7) look at me funny when I describe my first remote control, sitting next to the TV and turning the knob one way then the other.

    Hey, it works even if it's not kids. I once asked my first wife, "What was it like when men landed on the moon?"

    I'm guessing she didn't let you plant your flag for a while after that, huh?

    I'm at that magical age where I remember growing up with TVs like that, and can still ask my parents what it was like watching the Cubs win their last World Series.

    Kids are funny. Even older kids, like the ones I work with that are still in high school or fresh out.

    They're so cute, but sometimes I just want to duck tape their mouths shut.
