The sounds my son will never hear…


Dial up internet connection

The ringing and dialing of a ‘proper’ phone

Someone asking for change for the payphone

The whir of a video rewinding (although he will hear mummy asking for this to be done at the end of every DVD…silly mummy)

The clunk of a cassette tape being taken out (and the notion of a pencil being used to wind the tape back in will seem completely implausible)

That crackle crackle on a proper record (actually that’s a lie because they now seem to add it to things…)


I wonder what else…I wonder whether it matters.

I wonder what noises he will hear today that will soon become extinct…

    It does make you wonder doesn’t it? I often say things they think are awesome now will be lame in a few years 🙂
