I Remember When All of This Used To Be Volcanic Lava

When did I first realize that life was passing me by?

Well, I remember one incident, a couple of years ago.

It was a high-level class full of teenagers -- 15 - 17 -- and there was a speaking activity about music. The students had to, in pairs, agree on which ten CDs they would take if they had to go to a desert island for a year.

I was fairly confident this activity would go over well.

But all the students ridiculed it immediately and refused to do it. None of them had ever bought a CD in their lives, it seemed, they just downloaded all their songs onto their phone from the Internet.

I never download anything form the Internet. I'm afraid I might get electrocuted.
