I would miss Ice cream (Ben&jerrys), my books, my cat, my parents and food. I already miss my youth.

I would definitely miss family and friends but I think I would miss the comfort of routine. Of knowing what's going on and what your plan for the day I. Not knowing whats happening and feeling out of your comfort zone days after day would be a struggle for me
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon

I would miss my boyfriend more than anything. I am with him almost 24 hours a day, except when we are in classes. I miss him as soon as he is gone. when I'm not with him for extended periods of time I start to feel antsy. I know I could survive without him, but I wouldn't want to.

Definitively, I would miss my beloved ones if they weren't with me. A person may have a lot of material possessions, but if you have no one to share with, then they are worth nothing. Also, technology does help us a lot and makes our lives more comfortable and agreeable because we can connect to the people we care about, but again if those people are not with us, then technology loses its purpose.

I would absolutely miss my family and friends the most, just as almost everyone else. Modern conviences would probably come second. I mostly say that because I cannot survive without my books, it seems, and all my books are on my kindle, an electronic device that would no longer exist.

So what would you miss?

I am not sure what this refers to, but I would miss living. I would miss seeing the stars, smelling plants and flowers on the air, hearing the voices of other life forms and seeing their movements, and just the love that can be felt from all of existence, the laughter of my own species. And the Game, the Game called Life.

I understand what they are saying, and perhaps it is a valid response (assuming they did not survive the plague with you). That being said, the question inside the front cover, in my opinion, is directly related to the collapse of technology as we know it. The oldest remaining survivors will be the only ones who still know what the purpose of that now shiny brick with the word "iPhone" on it actually is. The characters are marvelled by the idea of technology, computer screens, and even trying to understand what the concept of the internet is. I think my answer here is impossible to say, because, we really don't know what we have until it is gone. The thing that you tend to miss the most is something that has become second nature to you already and that you don't think about.
Your last line is on point. What we take for granted is what we truly do miss and appreciate only after we no longer have it.

I would miss the people who are dear to me (just like in this covid confinement situation...) and I would miss my piano.
