The Foot Phone

I walked into the room and saw something very strange.  My daughter had my son's foot pressed against the side of her face.

"Excuse me," I said.  "What exactly are you doing?"

"Using the foot phone," my daughter replied, as if that was the most natural thing in the world to do.

I gave her a quizzical look.  "Does it work?"

She nodded and tickled my son's foot. 

He giggled.

"See?" she said.  "It works just fine!"

(Apparently not all phones are for talking on!)

    1. It was after he took a shower. I'm sure my daughter would've had no interest in talking on the foot phone if it had been before his shower!

    1. Might be hard to have a conversation if the phone kept taking off on you!

    1. Yeah. I was kind of curious about that, too. But I figured it might be better not to know! ;)

    1. Maybe they should make a ring tone that giggles. Wouldn't that be funny? ;)
