I usually enjoy being with younger people. A young friend had invited me to have lunch. In the midst of our conversation, he began "texting". I reprimanded him and he said, "I'm listening!" I said, "No you weren't; you were texting, and trust me, you are not clever enough to multi-task!"
He said, "I was listening; I know what you said!"
I said, "OK, then tell me what I just said just before I yelled at you."
He answered, "You said old dog!"
I said, "No, my sentence was that I wouldn't want to be old AND dull!"
I told him that in the future, if he began texting, I would get up and leave and he could text to his heart's content, but I wouldn't be there.
Hey, that would be one way to get out of my picking up the check!
