Kingergarten Class 1950: The Spoiler Alert

5 Dec

In the future they would need thumbs that were strong and fast.

In the future they would lead happy productive lives until one day somebody who knew them when they were in fourth grade would go on Facebook and relate a really funny but totally embarrassing story about the day they wet their pants at school. This would instantly ruin their lives forever.

In the future an obscure guy from the past would track them down to offer a slam-dunk business deal, disclose a horrible secret or express their long standing crush and there was not a darn thing they could do to avoid it
even if they had God’s own firewall to protect them.

In the future there would still be a hell but it would be called cell phone service.

In the future the only act of shame would be to never have been on television.

In the future there would be no Debbies, Susans, Larrys, Bruces, Howards, Eileens, Carols or Sandras in kindergarten. The “J” names would reign supreme with an occasional Hunter or Taylor (both sexes) to spice things up.

In the future the powers that be would spend an ungodly amount of money to go to the moon and then… well… you know… whatever… Fuhegedaboutit.

But for the moment they had their jump ropes, marbles, Johnny Across, after school clothes and hours of unsupervised play and that was enough. Plus their social security checks would be worth something.
