uh...uh...what's it called?

OK, one of the things about getting older is you often can't remember the right word.

I was about to tell someone yesterday how inept I am at all things media and how I really don't care that I'm not adept when I couldn't remember the word I needed.

"Well, uh," I mumbled, "I'm a what's it called....?"

At least my friend, about my age, by the way, didn't immediately shout out the word I was looking for though I know he knows it. Growing older, like I said.

I spent most of the morning trying to remember the term and the best I could come up with was "troglodyte"--which is a cave man.

So, I googled "British anti-industrial movement" (I'm not to inept to 'google'!) and found "Luddite"!

Luddite, Luddite, Luddite....There, it should be mine again.....

(At least until the next time I need it....)
