I like to weird my kids out by telling them how different certain things were when I was a kid. For instance, all three Berry children had dental appointments today.
In the middle of the cleanings, I started in, using a drawling, Texas accent for some reason. "When I was a kid, we only had mint tooth polish. And we got all excited when the bubble gum flavor came along."
Ya know, that kind of thing. Well, that pales in comparison to what just happened. Andrea came in to talk to me about a lady she's cleaning house for as I was getting ready for bed.
"Mom, do you think I could call her at 8, or would that be too early?"
I grabbed my PJs from the closet shelf. "I think that would be fine."
"Oh." Andrea's shoulders relaxed. "I just remembered she keeps her phone right by her when she sleeps. Mom." She gets right in front me, eyes wide. "She has THREE phones," -- she holds up three fingers to emphasize this -- "three home phones and they are all connected. Like if one rings by me, she can answer a phone in another room and it will stop ringing."
I about dropped my clothes I was laughing so hard. "Andrea, that's how all phones used to be!"
I'm not THAT old, am I?
