The Setting: Parents house. In the country. Like real county. There are actual amish people in this small section of Maryland.
Julie: Whoah! My new cell just received an email down here! My computer can't even pic up a wireless signal. How is this possible?
Mom: (Very confident, and very matter of fact) Well, Julie. There is a cell tower right down the road. Clearly, it's picking up that signal.
My dear, sweet, innocent Mother purchased her first personal cell phone less than a month ago and just learned to text. (Sort of) For years she didn't use her email address book, but typed in the address from a handwritten list but yet, she knows this?
The Setting: Melissa picking me up at my parents house to head home later that night.
Julie: Dad, did you see Mels sweet new Volvo?
Dad: Yeah! Mel, is this the same car from in Twilight?
(In my Dads defense, I totally made him watch it right after it came out on video under the pretense that he would enjoy the fast car scenes. )
