Quisp, don’t Skype

quispbox

My sister likes to use “Skype” to talk to her daughters, one of them has a new baby* so I guess it’s reasonable that using one of those newfangled picture-phones would be a good way to coo and be all grandmotherly without actually having to change diapers.

She thinks I should get with the program and use Skype, but I am perfectly happy just using the phone. Why would she want to look at me? When we were kids, we would build elaborate cereal-box partitions so we could look at the martian on the Quisp box, Captain Crunch, Tony the Tiger (rarely), The corn flakes rooster (usually). But not each other. It was fun to peek over the top of the wall and make her say “MOM! John’s LOOKING at me!!!”

* From an old Mad magazine; “New baby? What happened to the old baby? My God! It’s the Pampers that are supposed to be disposable!”… I still think this is hilarious.

Have your say!
