So I was at a party Saturday evening, (Don't laugh, and don't tell my kids, but yes, Grace does occasionally have a social life!) where the following question was raised: What three "small" inventions have most impacted your life? MY answer was (1) Pantyhose (2) birth control pills, and (3) sticky notes.
The guy I was with thought birth control pills and sticky notes were important, but he traded the pantyhose for "instant replay" (something he would never have done if he'd ever had to master garter belt 101).
My 27 year old daughter chose cell phones, Hot Pockets and IPOD's--what WOULD her generation do without electronics. I thought she would choose computers, which would have been my fourth choice, but she didn't have to--her current cell phone allows her to access the internet.
So what do you think? What inventions that have occurred since your birth have actually helped you the most or had the most impact on your life?
