Sophie and her parents were walking around Roma lake in Shun Yi. Suddenly she stops and her parents look expectantly wondering if she is going to announce that she needs a bathroom. But she pauses and looks like she is listening for something.
(*translated from chinese)
Is that my cell phone? Oh, sorry I have to take this call. (mimes taking a phone out of her pocket)
Hello? Hello? I cannot hear you the reception is bad... Can you call back later? I am out with my Papa and my Mama. We are at the park. Thank you.
Then our kid calmly resumes the walk with her parents.
At this point Fabien and I are laughing so hard that we forgot to take a camera to record all this. In retrospect I wish I did, because it's this kind of priceless moment which we will cherish for a really long time, and this blog is the closest approximation to a record that I will have.
Later on, I ask her who phoned? And she said it was "Mr Horse". Apparently horses have their own cell phones. And they tend to be in areas of low reception.
I know why people have kids. So they never need to watch TV again - ever. There is simply no substitute for this kind of entertainment.
