Thirteen Things I Can't Believe I Ever Lived Without

Yeah, I'm going to be showing just how old and decrepit I am.

1. Diet Coke. Yes, there were Dark Times when Tab and Diet Rite were the only diet sodas available. I try not to think of it too much.
2. Starbucks. I know, it seems passe to wax poetic about the caffeinated monster, but I really love Starbucks.
3. PC's. College would have been so much easier with a PC or a laptop. The really rich kids had Macintoshes and Radioshack had the TRS-80's, but they weren't common.
4. The Internet. I don't think I need to elaborate.
5. T.V. with remote controls. I remember having to get up and change the dial on the old Zenith.
6. iPod. I've had two in less than two years and I think it has permanently attached itself to my arm.
7. Microwave oven. Once upon time, I had to make popcorn on the stove top.
8. DirecTv. My town has cable, in name only. Love my satellite.
9. Tivo. Whoever invented this should get a Nobel Prize. I used to cut off the end of "The Sopranos" every time it was on, causing a minor war in the household.
10. Advil Gelcaps. If you haven't tried these, you gotta. They work fast and don't upset your stomach.
11. Costco. I actually need to buy 100 rolls of toilet paper at a time.
12. Oxyclean. If you have kids, you need this, particularly if you have a baby.
13. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It gets crayon marks off from the wall.
