What is that thing?

I consider myself a tech savvy person.

I know how to do a lot of things, technologically speaking.
I'm not afraid of learning.
I'm comfortable trying new things.
I'm not afraid of messing something up.

But...

I will admit, from time to time, my children teach me something new. 
Having been born in this age of technology, they are quite savvy too!
My son taught me about Google Classroom.
My daughter taught me how to fancy up my text messages with new features I hadn't even found yet.

However...

Sometimes, in spite of all the technology that my kiddos seem to know, I'm still surprised.
There are still things that I can't quite believe they don't know.
Last night I had one of those moments.

My daughter just rearranged her room over the weekend.
There is a new empty spot in her room now and I asked what she was planning to put there.
She glance over and said she wasn't sure yet, but she was wondering something.

What is that thing?

Oh. my. goodness.

I guess some things really do change.

  4. What a riot! I have two daughters, and they are also tech experts. It was interesting to see my oldest try to mail her driving permit into the State of Maine... priceless!

  6. This is a great poem! It reminded me of stumbling across a very battered phone booth last summer and trying to explain to my son what it was for. He just kept staring at it and saying,"But why?".
