A Q & A : with a Jewish teen’s cell phone
There’s an app for that?
I recently followed a WordPress blog that offers a daily dollop of inspiration to bloggers.
What a gift, right?
Today’s challenge: “Write a Q & A style interview with an inanimate object.”
So, with a nod of thanks to WordPress, here goes:
Reporter (R): So, I see that you’re a smart phone, right?
Teen’s Cell Phone (C): Duh, you can see the apps, can’t you? (Did I mention that this cell phone has an attitude and a particularly expensive-looking case?)
R: Okay, point well taken. So, I do see that you have tons of apps. Impressive.
Any Jewish ones?
C: Wha? Jewish apps? Never heard of that. Anywhere. You’re kiddin’ right?
R: Nope. (trying to sound cool). Know what the Hebrew date is? There’s an app for that.
R: Feel like whipping up some latkes? Matzo balls? Check out the Jewish cooking app.
(Gaining traction here). Mood strike you to see when Passover is? There’s an app for that too.
(All of a sudden, C ‘s index finger finds the App store, and the keyboard starts buzzing when C starts to search for Jewish apps.)
C: No way!!!! Jewish rock music? Free??? Jewish Quotes? From the Bible? Cool!!! Live streaming radio from ISRAEL? No way!
R: Yes, way.
C: There should be a class on this! Well, maybe not a class….that’s going, like, way too far. But some way for me and my owner to find out.
(Getting a little sad….) Like in Hebrew school I have to keep out of sight. In my owner’s backpack. Or pocket. Or worse….on the teacher’s desk where I know my owner feels the lifeline is gone.
(Feeling guilty here…) My owner once got in real bad trouble, so I’m off-limits.
But, someone should tell someone there’s all this cool stuff….
R: So noted.
