What do you do when your kid sets your front iPhone picture from a nice family shot to a oreo cookie?
I don’t know how to change it back!
Or like when he set my ring tone to heavy breathing that said, “Huuuuhhhh…huuuuuhhh…Pick up the phone….”
Is that a sign of creativity or mental problems?
I so fear that I’m turning into my parents. The ones who (years ago after opening my new invention give-it-a-try-just-for-fun gift) yelled at me , “RETURN that answering machine thing immediately! I will never use it! What a waste of money!”
Only a few years ago, during an adult party we were forced to wake up my 13-year-old because we didn’t know how to turn on the Wii to play “Just Dance!”
Or when I need anything changed on my phone, I instantly call one of my kids to help me figure it out. Two of whom are so young they do not even have a phone yet!
Am I just too busy?
Do I not care?
Maybe I’m too busy to care?
I was in the Apple store just last week and heard they were looking for new team members.
I came home with the website address to apply for a position and was met with jeers of laughter.
“Are you crazy?”
“You are too old, Mom!”
“You have to be smart to work there!”
Wait. What? I’m a college grad! I went to Graduate School! I even made the Deans list 7 out of 8 times! And I can do any Sudoku puzzle in record time!
But turn on the TV once someone was playing Xbox….welll…hmm….I guess as long as I have children or people younger (smarter tech wise) than me hanging around, life is good.
Or at least running well.
