Me: "A site called Pinterest. People post...err...pin pictures of things that they like."
Mags: "Oh! I need one of those 'Pinpissed' things. I love taking pictures and looking at pictures."
Me: "When you are older you can have one."
Mags: "Like when I'm six and can get my ears pierced?"
Me: "No. You have to be older than that."
Mags: "Like as old as you?"
Me: "Yes. As old as me."
Mags: "What? That's 100 million bazillion years from now. It won't even be here anymore."
This got me thinking. What WILL be around when Maggie is 35? You know, in a million bazillion years. I'll hear my friends that are around my age say,
"What did we EVER do without a cell phone on us at all times when we were growing up?"
It always makes me laugh because I think it's my generation's way of saying,
"We used to walk uphill to school, BOTH WAYS, in the snow."
It's true, though. There are so many ways to connect with people in this day and age. As much as I have fought it, I have given in to a few more ways. I'm officially on Pinterest and LinkedIn. I'm still building both my accounts...VERY SLOWLY...but I'm there. And because that wasn't enough, Chris and I made a SECOND Pinterest account for our podcast of original children's stories, Night Light Stories. Again, we're working on building our 'boards' over there, but we'd love to connect with all of you.
As for Mags, we'll just have to wait and see what is to come in the next 30 years. For now, I'll just pin her pictures on my 'According to Mags' board.
You know, 'pin' worthy pictures, like this one...
