85 degrees F today. I ate my lunch surrounded by hot sun, and flowers. The garden looked so beautiful I wanted to photograph it, but even though I’ve been carrying my new “supposedly simple to use” Samsung cell phone around for a couple of weeks, I’m ashamed to admit that I still have no idea how to use the darn thing. Just when I got comfortable with my old phone, it “died”, and I had to replace it with this horrible red one. I won’t tell you how long it took me to work out how to hang up at the end of a call. Remember the olden days when we’d simply have to put the receiver down in the cradle?
A couple of girls who were maybe in Junior High sat on the bench next to me. We smiled at each other, because we were all wearing *green* for St. Paddy’s Day. I asked them if they knew how to take a photo with my phone. They looked at it, and in less than a minute showed me that the camera button was on the side, and to take a photo one simply had to click it.
When did kids get smarter than us?
