Technically Amish

| Related | September 12, 2013

(My parents live in an area of Pennsylvania that has a large Amish population. My daughter and I visit them from Finland. My daughter is curious about the Amish way of life, and I explain.)

Me: “They don’t use a lot of the technology that we do, like electricity, telephones, and TVs.”

(My daughter seems satisfied. Later, we return from our trip and are visiting friends back in Finland.)

Daughter: “Mom, they don’t have a TV in their living room!”

Me: “Some people don’t watch TV.”

Daughter: *whispering* “They might be Amish!”
