You Can't Blame a Girl for Trying

This is a Blackberry.

This is a Calculator.

They are not the same thing. While a calculator can help you balance your checkbook and spell HELL and BOOBS on it, it cannot send email or tell all your Facebook friends that your status is "very tired" or "incredibly bored." (Incidentally, can we all just take a minute to admit that we are all only using Facebook to look at pictures of people from high school?) A calculator also cannot help you Twitter to all your tweeps that your cat Mr. Widdlesworth is recovering nicely from his gall bladder surgery, thank you very much. That right there is as interesting as when I talk about The Comedian's teething. Scintillating-up-to-the minute tweeting for sure.

Someone needs to tell TD all this though because she keeps toting around the calculator and exclaiming, "Hold on. I'm working..." while she stabs the number keys or presses the calculator to her ear in an effort to get Nana or Mem on the phone.

If she starts calling people 'douchebags' then I'll know we have a problem.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
