Pre-App

6 Oct

Before there was an App for this or that there was a card for this, that and the other.

Yep, those of us old enough or dare I say mature enough to remember way back—before the technological age and the need for speed consumed our lives, but not so long ago—when people actually got enjoyment from sending personal sentiments in a very personal (OK, old fashioned) way. Well anyway, it was the 20th century, afterall. The wheel had already been invented.

No, not by an App. But via card shops (once the place to purchase a card with cash) for any occasion, holiday or special commemoration, which have all but been replaced by corner drug store chains. Although they’re now fewer and farther between, alternative non-occasion selections of course are wider and more diverse.

Oh, the times, they are a changing. You can probably find a uniquely designed card NOW for your unwed BFF’s second baby shower, the wedding anniversary of the in-laws from hell you despise, your sister on her fourth trip to the altar (this time to a much younger man), your spoiled, bratty nephew’s bar mitzvah, and even to celebrate your narcissistic cousin’s 30th birthday milestone (count ’em) for the third consecutive year.

And just think there’s a special card for everyone of them, and then some!
