Today I was standing at the kitchen stove cooking and my 6 year old daughter was sitting at the table playing her Nintendo DS. She was having some sort of issue with her game. I don’t know what. I couldn’t see the game from where I was standing. But she started loudly fussing at it. I said, “You know the game can’t hear you right?” “Yes” she said, and went back to fussing at it.
I said, “What is wrong?”
She said, “I am hitting the right button but it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.”
I said, “Is it locked up?”
“What?” she said.
I said, “Is the game locked up?”
“What does locked up mean?” she said.
I said, “Is it stuck? You know, is the game stuck?”
She sat there for a few seconds, turned her head to the side a little like she was trying to look at it from a different angle. Then she grabbed it with her left hand, lifting it off the table, and while holding it up in the air she said, “Nope! It’s not stuck. See I lifted it right off the table.”
