    This sounds SO familiar! When my kids were teens they all thought I should have my cell phone taken away and go back to a rotary dial wall phone.

    Well Angie,

    Now you know why I have steadfastly refused to step up to a "smart phone" and keep my flip phone instead.

    All kidding aside, you have a lovely 14 year old daughter and, as the Brits are prone to say, "what you gain on the swing, you lose on the roundabouts."
    If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say, talk in your sleep.

    I didn't love her having a smart phone when she was younger, but since her dad and I are divorced it made things much easier to communicate with both parents when she was with one or the other of us.

    Nah, you are just afraid I'll beat you in Words with Friends.

    Did the Brits get that saying from those roundabout roads that are all over the Northeast? Because I am NEVER going on one of those again. I'm lucky I'm alive. Not sure what inebriated person designed those things.

    Yep, roundabouts are common there. We have some around here too and it's amazing how people don't seem to understand the basic traffic rules that apply, like who has the right of way,...

    About two months ago, a young man in a BMW got killed at a roundabout in nearby Cabazon CA. He hit the roundabout (literally), doing over 90 mph according the the CHP. He wasn't wearing a seatbelt and got thrown out of the car. The two young ladies with him were belted and survived the crash. Alcohol was involved in the crash.

    PS: What is "Words with Friends"?

    PPS: Whatever it is, what makes you think you can beat me at it?

    Basic traffic rules? Right of way? The only rule I can figure out is that once you get into one keep going as fast as you can in one general direction while praying that you make it back out.

    Cheap Thrills - sorry to stress you out - and hey, anyone (me) who spends a couple of hours on one of these things deserves anything that comes her way. I was a little... mentally in need of some kind of break yesterday so it was all good. And I still can't figure out the new version But don't post the answer yet; I'll get there.
