Why old people need glasses

Our 6 yr old says that old people die because their eyesight gets bad and then they have to squint up their eyes to read the sign that says, “No Smoking,” but since they can’t see well, they read it as “Smoking” instead and so they smoke and die.

Old-fashioned

A 10 year old girl asked to use my desk phone yesterday.  Here’s how it went:

Girl: How do I dial?
Me: Just dial direct.  You don’t need anything special to get out.
Girl:  (puts receiver down on desk, dials number and stands there)  Now what do I do?
Me:  PUT IT TO YOUR EAR!

Girl picks up phone and begins to talk to her mother:

Girl: Yeah mom…. I KNOW!…. Well, I’m talking on an OLD phone….. Yeah….It has a CORD!
