Old School

As Alexandra was leaving for school I handed her her library book that was due. She let the back cover fall open and I heard her ask,  

"What's this?"

She stood looking with curiosity at an old checkout card tucked into a pocket.

Quickly, I explained how libraries worked in the old days, and all the while I was thinking how quickly times change. How something that seemed so ordinary - like a library checkout card - had become extinct sometime between my childhood and hers.

A moment later, Lorelai walked in. "What's that?" she asked.

Take two.
