Big Kid: Mom, can I get an iPhone?
Me: What?!? Are you crazy? I don't even have an iPhone! You're 6 years old, are you kidding me?
Big Kid: Please? Come on, mom.
Me: You are INSANE!! What does a 6-year-old need an iPhone for?
Big Kid: So I can call you and stuff. I want one 'cuz the new ones are 4D now. Wouldn't that be cool? When we talked, it would be like I was standing right in front of you!
Me: Wh--? Oh, 4G? Not 4D. 4G just means it processes data faster, or something.
Big Kid: (looking disappointed) Oh. I guess I don't need one then. But when they go 4D, can I get one then?
Me: ...yes. Of course you can.
Let's hope we're at least 2 decades away from 4D phone calls, so that he can buy it with his own money. It would be pretty cool to talk to my grandkids in 4D though...
