We're at the beach for a family vacation.
My 13-year-old son has his cell phone.
My 11-year-old niece has her cell phone.
They exchange numbers.
Then text each other in the living room.
The families settle into their rooms for the night.
His phone rings. She has sent him a text from the other side of the house.
We can't get my mother near a computer, and look at her grandchildren. Technology races on.
