LOL... we are so ca yuppie... my daughter just asked what a toll booth was.

  • We saw one of those stand ashtrays from the 70s that were like a trap door and the ashes and junk would fall down out of the tray. Neither one of my kids had a clue what it was, my Papaw had one or I probably would not have known either.

  • phone booths, pay phone, landline phones, wire-ed (vs wireless) internet connections, i wish he didnt know about toll booths -they are complete bs!taxes should maintain roads! he asked why darthmall (a bad guy from star wars) is named mall - like what does that have to do with a mall --- and he learned that mall is also a verb meaning to destroy...

    if you wanna see something you have never seen go to youtube - japanese potty training videos - public bathroom - omg their public bathroom is amazing!!

  • Probably lots of things, because he's only 2, but the only things I can think of aren't common here anyway lol. Like lightening, fireflies, etc.
