Lydia and the Phone

August 15, 2011

I figured that it was about time to blog about Lydia, and it took just over 2.5 milliseconds to figure out what the theme would be.

The common perception of teenage girls is that they spend an inordinate amount of time on the telephone.  This perception is completely accurate.  What I don’t get is: what in the world could they spend so much time talking about?

Lydia is our third daughter, and from what I can see, she definitely has a future in telecommunications.

Here is an oft-repeated conversation at our house:
“Lydia, are you on the phone again?”
Then she gives you a look like this:

Followed by “<<Cara, wait just a second>> What?”
“I said ‘Are you on the …’ oh, never-mind.”

Of course, there is always the problem of the nosy ears of a little brother or sister, whereupon Lydia will escape to the relative privacy of the front porch.

What I want to know is what girls did before the advent of Alexander Graham Bell.  Oh well…

We love you, Lydia.
