The Internet and an American Girl
By Jonathan Gershater on May 15, 2008
My daughter acquired a princess net for her room and was adamant that I install it this evening. Whilst I was looking for a suitable hook in the garage when she joined me and the following conversation ensued:
"Daddy, what's that blue flashing light?"
“That’s the Internet router.”
“What’s the Internet?
“Well it's a lot of wires that connect computers together.”
“So we can exchange information such as sending photos and email to grandpa.”
“Mommy said she ordered my princess net on her computer. Did she use the Internet?”
“Yes the Internet can also be used for shopping.”
“And the net arrived the next day!”
”Sometimes it is faster to shop using the Internet.”
“So, daddy, can I get a computer please I want to order a new American Girl?”
”Did you finish your homework?”
