The New Year With Nate (2007 – Part I)

January 1, 2007 at 3:01 am (Nate)

Not long ago I was visiting the shop and Nate cajoled someone’s cell phone away from them. They turned to me and asked, “Is he going to reprogram that?” I responded, “Its quite possible that he will.” Ask Boo, she’ll tell you all the cool things Nate found on HER cell phone.

Just this evening, after receiving a text message from my best good friend Troy (reveling the New Year in Paris no less) an odd icon appeared on my phone. After looking at said icon and running through the menu on my phone for 5 40 minutes, I finally asked my TEN YEAR OLD what he thought that strange little icon could be. After reviewing said icon for 5 minutes seconds, he brings me the phone and says, “I think your inbox is full Momma. Try deleting some of your messages and see if it goes away.” He then walks away muttering something about old people not being allowed to have cell phones.

Of course, he was right.

Happy New Year from an old Momma and her 10 year old technological smart ass genius.

    *chuckle* Kids aren’t scared of new technology. My dad, who’s really old, can’t even do SMS’s, never mind get his voicemail.

    Sickening huh. Of course I would like my bf and his 12 year old to remember where the hell they put things so when they are looking for them, well so they look for them before coming straight to me and asking me where they are.

    LOL! I get that from “kids” all the time. 😦 An 18-year old co-worker asked me “You don’t have an IPOD yet?”

    I said “Dude, give me time! I am still excited about having a CD player in my new car!”
