Kids These Days

Needing to look up a phone number at a friend’s house, my teenage daughter asked for a phone book. She might as well have asked for a papyrus scroll.

“A phone book?” asked her friend.

“You know,” said my daughter. 
“A book with numbers in it.”

“Oh,” said her friend as it dawned on her. “You mean a math book.”
