Can You Hear Me Now?

Jake is desperate for a cell phone, not to call people on mind you, but for the status and to play games on. I tried to explain to him that there are other devices that actually work better to play games on called, oh, I don’t know -- a Nintendo DS; devices that have the additional charm of already being in the house. But he’s not buying my spiel and the topic of his desperate need for a phone comes up weekly.

Bri, who was relatively content being the only seventh grader (and quite possibly the only student) in her entire school who was phoneless, decided that it would be the height of unfairness if her eleven year-old brother had a phone before she did. And I'm not sure she was convinced when I assured her I wasn’t going to buy Jake a phone to play games on.

But Bri, after months of listening to Jake describe his longing for a phone, decided that she too has a significant need for a phone. I, who only got a cell phone a year ago as I am hopelessly behind the times (not really, I was just trying to avoid calls from my children’s schools), have decided to buy Lizzy a phone just to play with their minds!
