Don’t you feel sorry for children who don’t have access to modern-day electronics? Don’t you just wish every kid could have a Wii and a Kindle and an Ipod and all those fancy high-fallootin’ gadgets that no one over the age of 40 has any idea has to operate, let alone program?
Just think of all of those poor inner-city children, or those unfortunate Third World kids who have absolutely no idea what excitements are available on the World Wide Web.
Who needs a Wii?
This message has been brought to you by Critter, who has been grounded from all things electronic until he is 40 years old.
And Lymes-Disease-Carrying Deer Ticks, one of whom attached himself to Critter during this particular day and caused him to have to take over a month of the biggest horse-pill-sized antibiotics I have ever seen.
(When he balked I explained we could do this the hard way, or the easy way. The easy way was orally. The hard way, well….wasn’t…..)
Personally one of the things that makes me very sad is when I see a kid or kids in the grocery store riding around in a cart or even a stroller in some cases with an iPhone or similar gadget in their hands playing some game and the parent and child are not speaking a word to one another through out the entire store! A similar scene can also be viewed at a restaurant with the entire family sitting there just plugging away on each of their own devices! Come on people these are precious moments and conversations that you are missing out on! Grrrrr
