We asked our regular contributors through e-mail What did you have in 1999 but not 2018? We got many interesting responses. Here are some of them. We have just copied and pasted their responses, not editing them in any way.
2. Two quarters in the front tiny pocket of my jeans, in case I needed to make an emergency phone call while I was out.
Now I wouldn’t even be able to find a phone booth.
3. A body that was legit and just would not quit.
4. A landline telephone.
5. Zero debt.
6. JNCO jeans and acne. Sometimes the future can be bright.
7. A Prince song about how great the party was going to be.
9. Both my parents.
10. A CD walkman.
