The other day we had the classic “Can you call my phone, I don’t know where it is” maneuver. I happened to say, “Just hang it up,” which peaked my daughter’s curiosity.
“Why do you want to HANG the phone?” she asked. You don’t see too many corded phones outside an office these days, and even then I guess it doesn’t make much sense.
She also corrects me when I say “tape”, meaning to record something (as a 6 year old crafty girl – tape only means one thing).
I’m sure these phrases will be obsolete and we will randomly use them with our grandchildren who will think we are crazy!
