Sister Jen: Hello. I just bought something. Can you guess what it is?
Sister Jen: It is called Kindle. Do you know what it does?
Sister Jen: What?
Kelly: It gets unruly earwax out of your ears.
Sister Jen: No. It doesn't. You read from it. It is like a little computer. You can buy books wirelessly and read them right away. It holds 1500 books. And it will even read aloud to you.
Kelly: ( backtracking) Oh, yes. Now I see. I would like one of those.
Jen: I thought you would. Now, will you go on Ebay and help me choose a chic Kindle carrying case?
Kelly: Yes. I like the one with the birds. Or the orange with blue flowers.
Jen: Both excellent choices. What was all that about earwax?
Kelly: Candling, Kindling. Is very confusing.
Do any of you have Kindle or know someone who does?
Do they enjoy reading from a screen?
Is this the future of reading? (It sure would have been nice for college textbooks.)
Do I need to get rid of all my sagging Ikea shelves full of paperbacks and get one of these doo-dads?
When I say doo-dads, does it make me seem like a very old lady?
(Cause I'm not. I'm still 100% medium-foxy.)
