I was 12. I was at Girl Scout Camp. Camp. No flush toilets. No showers. No phones. No TV. (and no other electronic stuff because it wasn’t invented yet…) Roughing it. And we loved it…
And then there was a TV in the dining hall. What??? Why? We NEVER had a TV in the dining hall before?… And we all went up to the units to get into our jammies, but instead of going to bed, we came back to the dining hall.
We watched and waited. Some of us dozed. Finally they sent us to bed… In the morning, though, the TV was on again… We saw in re-runs what we had been trying to see live: The first human steps on the moon.
