I would have loved to live during Jane Austen's time. Every time I read an Austen novel I think I would have fit well during that time. I love the way everyone spoke so politely. I love the idea of going to London for all of the balls and to the country for the summer. I get a little bored living in the same place all year long.....with no balls or reasons to dress up fancy.
The last era I wish I could try out was 1900-1910. It would have been so exciting to see all of the new inventions. The car was becoming more popular, the Victrola, the first movies....it just seems like it would have been really fun.
Alas, I didn't make it to any of these eras. I'm just a product of the early 80's. Even though I am a little sad about this, there are a few modern conveniences I am really grateful for.
1. Tampons. I think I mentioned this before, but I am really glad these were invented.
2. Hot showers. Even though I usually have a child screaming on the other side of the door, at least I have warm, running water.
3. Disposable diapers
4. Sweat pants. I'm pretty sure corsets were worn all day.
7. Taco Bell
8. Cell phones
What era would you have picked if you had the choice?
