Congratulations, Kristy! I hope you enjoy the books! There will be one more chance to win next Friday, so be sure to stop by.
Now for the story.
My nine-year-old son brought out a couple of conch shells and handed one to me. "Mama, talk into this quietly."
I held it like a microphone and started talking.
"No, Mama. Like this." He put his conch shell up to his ear like a telephone and started talking.
I looked at him kind of funny. "Don't you need some kind of connecting wire between the two shells for it to work like a phone?"
He shook his head and spoke into his shell. "Can you hear me?"
"Yes, Bubba. I hear you."
He walked into the other room and did the same thing. "Can you hear me?"
He came back to where I was. "Mama, conch shells are perfect phones. They echo real far, so you don't need wires!"
Okay. Maybe I should suggest using conch shells to the telephone companies. Then we can all walk around with shells plastered to our heads!
