I was multitasking. The computer had a virus, so I was running some software to clear it up. My wife’s phone was damaged, so I was trying to fix that as well. My phone was tied up since I was using it to review instructions and step-by-step videos.
In short, I was hogging the technology, to the dismay of my daughters. They had kept themselves entertained for while by reading, etc… but I guess they had enough.
My oldest complained, “Can I get to use some technology, please?”
I responded, “Do you know how much technology went into printing books?”
“I mean something more modern!”
“Books are mostly written on computer and printed on computer driven presses.”
“Daddy, you know what I mean! I mean something digital!”
I help up my hand and wiggled my fingers. “These are the original digits. Here, let me show you. You grab this page with these two digits, and move it over to this side. You keep doing that as you read. See? Digital!”
I don’t think she bought my argument.
