Ah, the Joys of Modern Life

At what other time in history could you experience such joys as attempting to have a normal conversation with your husband through a Skype video conference (direct from Taiwan) with a lapful of kids fighting over the microphone and loudly laughing because he's chosen the form of a cartoon cat. (The eyebrows were to die for.)

You might find yourself wondering what effect this form of technology is having on your children when the two year old kindly explains that Daddy's not in the microphone, he's in the computer - and your husband obligingly acts as if he's trying to pull himself out.

Sounds like fun. When's the last time you had a *normal* conversation with your husband with a lapful of kids anyway? ;)
