The kids have their computers in various places in the house. We keep in contact through an instant messenger (its better than yelling). My 16 year-old, who had been with me for the longest time in the living room, was recently moved to a desk in the dining room. He is relatively new to instant messenger, and is still learning the ropes in making quick, succinct messages. We had this conversation today…. kind of…. the IM doesn’t show it, but the time lapse between his responses to mine were about 20-30 seconds. That’s nearly an eternity in IM-time. lol.
What a funny guy! I should have known- it was about lunch!
