Rockstarism #266 – The Ulterior Motive

#266 Rockstar: Mum. What's an error? Me: A mistake, something causing the computer not to work properly. Rockstar: You mean like a bug? Me: Well... Technically the bug causes the error message on the computer. Rockstar appears to mull this over... Rockstar: What's the worst thing a bug does? Me: Um... Probably wipe your data? Rockstar: <conversationally>What's data? Me: <thinking: ?! Thought he knows what data is> Information. Like when you can't watch video clips on Youtube anymore because the server no longer has that clip in its memory. Rockstar: <conversationally>Ok, what's the second worst thing that can happen? Me: Probably when you can't run programs - like when your Om Nom game no longer works. Maybe you can't start up the App anymore or it hangs. Rockstar: <conversationally>Ok, what's the third - Me: Oh come on. You're not serious, you don't really want to know that. Rockstar: Wha-at... Yes I do. Me: You want me to stop chatting with my friend on Whatsapp, don't you. Rockstar: Yeah.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Hehehe, Rockstar is so tactful and smart to think of such a good way to keep mommy away from her smartphone. Being inquisitive by asking questions is good – he can learn more this way. 🙂
