One more time, I find myself being the mediator between the feuding mom and 13 year old daughter. I understand the whole topic was about getting into the ocean. In any case, to personalize the issue a little more, I asked Tasha what would she do if her daughter did the same thing. Pat came the reply – “I would send her to her grandmom’s place so both of them can complain about me together”. Oh! Boy!! I took another long sip from the wine glass, wished her future husband good luck and went back to sleeping in the beach 😉
Skymall magazine – cover page ad proudly hawks a keyboard that is spill proof and “dishwasher safe”. No less!!! Dishwasher safe! Now, which one of us has not been annoyed by the accumulating dirt on our keyboards and in an inspired moment then flung them for a good spin with our china and silverware into the dishwasher for a grand old rinse and heat dry cycle? We can rest easy now. There is a product for us! Coming up next from the same “21st Century Ideas Retrofitted for the 19th Century Department” – a hard disk that can be cleaned with your vacuum!!! 🙂
Hilarious!! During my daily call to mom in India, she started talking about the reading habits of her grandchildren. When it came to Niki (my younger one), she was desperately trying to decribe the iPad (on which Niki was reading her books during our last trip to India) – “Sei Je, Niki erokom korey dito aar sob kichu ultey paltey jeto” (roughly translated, “Don’t you remember? she used to do like this and everything went topsy turvy”) 🙂 I had to mute myself for 10 seconds 🙂 That was the most humbling description of an iPad!! No doubt Jobs turned in his grave!!!
