Just picture this in your head

Setting: The Breakfast Table

Caroline: Daddy, do farmers have computers?

Daddy: Well, they do now.

Caroline: Oh, so they used to just have wooden ones, and they'd pretend the pictures were moving?


[Yes, and I wonder whether their neighbors would all gather to help them build these wooden computers? Like a barnraisin'? Followed by a hoedown and maybe a spell of high-jinks cornshuckin'?

Those winter nights. They could sure get dull.]

What Hannah didn't say was how, after a shocked second of silence and double-take, we all enjoyed a good laugh. Caroline pretty quickly figured out she'd said something funny.
Yes, we loved it. Good times.

That is HILARIOUS! And it reminds me that the day our 25 chicks arrived, my 4-yr-old girl got out her Barbie laptop and said "I've got to see what we need to do for the chicks."
