Why can't I walk around with this phone?

The Girl can not understand the concept of a corded phone. This afternoon, despite repeated warnings that she could not walk around her gram's house while talking on that phone, she still attempted to do so. I'm thinking that if I tried to teach her about party lines, her head would explode.

Wait until I tell her how we used to have to get up to change the TV channel....

  1. My niece is the same way at her grandmas. The only difference? A turning dial phone. She just stared at it for 5 minutes and then asked if grandma could really call people with that. Wait til she discovers that Grandma's computer is Windows 95! ;)

  2. A *ROTARY* phone???!!! Wow! I didn't know anyone still had those. Who has the patience to wait for it to go back in place for you do do the next number, right? LOL!

  3. What? A phone? In the house??? Pfft. Is that what keeps ringing in this damn place? Gah.
