We were on the bus the other day and Ruff–who’s a self confessed geekmeistr–stops playing angry zombirds on his mobile and starts reading a book. Now I’m not fussy, but I quite like reading a proper book or my mum’s kindle. But Ruff gets all stroppy and says,
“Yeah, but you need to keep up. The new apps are just like Kindle and e-readers and stuff. They can even remember what page you’re on and change chapters and stuff. And the fonts are great. And you have a backlight.”
“But what about books,” Elli said.
“No problem with books. But I don’t want to have to lug a book around with me everywhere. So I have it on my phone too, duh. See there’s this Kira thingy-look here. ”
But then we passed a burger joint and Ruff saw the meal deal for £2.99 and went off on one.
Concentration span of a gnat, appetite of a gorilla. That’s what he’ll have on his gravestone. That, or, I definitely think that this is the right button..aarrgh!
