Phonebook [Tuesday 23 Aug 2011 at 08:04 pm]
Owen
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?

Congratulations! Your daughter has excellent intuition. Hopefully she will use her power for good rather than evil, and will grow up to be Nobody's Fool.

You're supposed to say, "She's a friend. I don't think you've met her." But don't think for a minute that Miss Smarty-Pants is going to buy this. Great kids are eerie like that.
