My Dad needs a new calculator. That's because he has the first one they ever made. It runs on a nine-volt battery. A what? You heard me: A nine-volt battery. When was the last time anyone (besides an accountant) used a calculator that wasn't an app on their phone?
So rather than run around town on a 20th-century scavenger hunt I simply ordered my Dad a new calculator from Amazon. I hope they'll blow the dust off of it before they ship it.
This is so going to screw up my future Amazon searches for a while: "If you like calculators, maybe you'll like an Abacus.”

If your organization is looking for a keynote speaker to talk about the caregiving work/life balance, shoot me an email: LeighannLord@gmail.com. I give a funny and informative talk on “Parenting Your Parents.”
We make them parents. They make us people: crazy people.
