Ego Blow

K: Korean cell phones have some really cool features on them... for example video chat. Mark and I couldn't figure out how to use it on his phone, so I asked a couple of my 4th grade students:

Kim: "Can you guys show me how video chat works?"

Grace: "Sure." ::beep beep beep click:: "See, it's up now."

Kim: "Wait, how'd you do that again?"

Louisa: "Uh, you have to do it slowly so she can figure it out."

Grace: "Why don't you know how to do this anyway?"

I've officially entered my parents' generation of having kids more than 15 years younger than me explaining technology to me.

Your cute story reminds me of that saying: "Out of the mouths of babes" comes all kinds of wisdom. Another example of that age-old saying that we are never too old to learn!! Stay young, dear!!
