    Cell Your Life Away

    | Petaluma, CA, USA | Children, Friends, Sons & Daughters

    (My eight-year-old daughter has been begging for a cell phone, and is jealous of her 11-year-old friend who just got her first cell, an older iPhone. My husband and I take them both to a local farm.)

    Me: “[Friend], your phone’s falling out of your pocket; you should have left it in the car.”

    Friend: “But I’m taking pictures of the kittens.”

    Me: “I guess that’s reasonable.”

    Daughter: “And her mom called her.”

    Me: “Oh, why’d she call?”

    Friend: “She just wanted to make sure we got here.”

    Me: “Nope, we sold you to sea traders.”

    (Everyone laughs.)

    Daughter: “Mom? If we do sell her, can I have her phone?”
