Grandpa's Blackbird

I was sitting at my grandpa's kitchen table yesterday, texting a friend. My grandpa saw what I was doing and asked, "Is that your blackbird?"

Me: Huh? Do you mean Blackberry?
Grandpa: Oh, yes, Blackberry.
Me: No, this is a Sidekick. Kind of the same thing.
Grandpa: Have you seen my Blackberry?
Me: No.
Grandpa: Let me go get it.

I should have known:

I bet your grandpa is more technologically advanced than my dad. My dad bought a new computer a couple months back and my husband went over to set it up for him. My husband had to teach my dad how to double-click.

I keep a PDA just like that! It's easier to replace the stylous when you lose it.
