Ye olde DVD?

Making sense of a yard sale find.


My husband and I were at a yard sale in Centerville on a beautiful Saturday morning. There were lots of children’s items and plenty of kids digging through the piles. One girl, about 7, pulled a vinyl record from one of the piles and exclaimed in her high-pitched voice: “Is this a huge DVD? Are they kidding?” Every parent there burst into laughter.
