I handed the nine-year-old my phone so she could play Angry Birds. It's an Android and has all the idiot buttons Google insisted on instead of following the wise Apple one-button model.

She slipped into one of the buttons and ended up with my phone in phone mode. It was easy enough to put back into her game.

Along the way, however, she paged through my phone book with all my friends' and family's numbers. She zeroed in, among all those names and numbers, on my girlfriend. "Who's _______, Daddy?"

What am I supposed to say to that?


Seen on the internet: Why does Gadhafi think he can succeed in defying the central government in Washington?
