Apparently I am more stupid than a cell phone...

So, I was trying to use my aforementioned tech-savvy sister's cell phone while we were driving home from a fantastic episode of sledding. Her phone has this touch pad that requires a bit of finesse for proper operation. I was bumbling around, attempting to get the phone to respond to my inexperienced touch when I muttered: "stupid phone."

From the back seat, Miss A piped up (with a bit of a know-it-all tone) "Is the phone really stupid Mom? Or do you just not know how to use it?"

This brief mother/daughter exchange has made me sadly aware of two things.

One, Miss A is only nine but on the brink of becoming a pre-teen who knows more than me about most electronic things and likely will soon think she knows more about everything else.

Two, there is a distinct possibility that I am more stupid than the phone.
