The Simple Life?

In my exploration of how we can get back to the simple life of our great-nine-times-removed-grandparents, I decided to visit a gnome, Grimble Grumble.

My first few visits were as expected and I was given the usual banter on how well they were able to cope with the world using technology that was older than Methuselah.  All so stereotypical.

But one day I gave Grimble a surprise visit, only the surprise was mine.

He drove up in a Barbie-sized S-series Tesla.  The house was full of mini-appliances.

“We may be simple, but we’re not stupid,” Grimble said with a shrug.

For those in the know, Grimble Grumble is the name of the gnome in the early Pink Floyd song.
