Two Old People Talk About Computers
What kind of computer did you get?
A white one.
Ohhh. How many....you know...thingy's does it have?
Sarcastic non-words? OH, puffed out cheeks....no? Eyerolls? Do you want to know how many eyerolls it has?
You want to know how many memories it has? Well there was this one time in '64 when it joined a commune...
MEMORY...how much memory does it have?
Five? It has five memory.
No? Um, six. Yeah, six or seven memories.
How many giga-whatzies does it have?
Oh, Gigashmirtz? Lots.
I don't think gigashmirtz are real things.
Sure they are. There are like a million gigashmirtz in a megashmirtz. Something like that.
Yup, and megashmirtz.
You need to stop saying that or it's going to stick in our addled brains and we're going to repeat it in polite company.
Gigashmirtz. Ok, that was the last time.
Are you going to blog this conversation?
Mmm, I would but I 'm pretty sure it would take up too many gigashmirtz.
