I busted out the record player again at school this week.

The children were stunned.  AGAIN.

“What’s that Mrs. (insert my last name HERE)?”

“A what?!?”

This post from last year sums it all up….

What do you say when your four year old students ask you what this is:

And then tell you this:

is the biggest CD/DVD they have EVER seen.

Do you:

A.  Laugh and tell them all about how you used a “record player” to play your Strawberry Shortcake record back in the day?

B.  Tell them they need to get with it…this is new technology?

C.  Consider yourself old and be done with it?

Yes, my friends, I TOTALLY busted out the record player and played “9-1-1″ for the kids from the Community Helpers album the school had.

Now, who had more fun?

    I’m Feelin’ you. The other night we were down stairs in the basement/pool hall. We have and old record player down there that still works, and yes I still have some “albums” from my youth…..We broke out the 1984 album by Van Halen and played it. And…….Michael jackson’s Thriller album… Oh how I remember the good ol’ days! : )
