Ben and Eli were digging around in the closet and found an old craft project they’d made probably a year ago — a couple plastic cups connected with a string — the old classic “phone.”
So they stretched it out in the living room, and Ben reminded Eli to put his mouth into it for speaking and put use his ear for listening. And then the following transpired:
Ben: Eli? Can you hear me?
Ben: Can you hear me?
Ben: Hi Eli.
Eli: Hi Ben.
Ben: What are you doing?
Eli: Um…. sitting on the couch.
Ben : Oh. OK, bye.
Who needs a cell phone when cups and string will do?!
