“Hey Mom, bring a pot up here,” yelled Alex from his upstairs bedroom.
“Why?” I asked, knowing he was attempting to disassemble a bed frame in preparation for our move.
“I just watched a video on how to take the frame apart, and I need it.” Okay, that’s interesting.
I start laughing aloud for two reasons:
- Problem Solving. I’ve never logged onto YouTube to solve problems. At 20 years old, this is a top-of-the-list source for him. What a glaring generational difference. It’s amusing to me.
- Problem Solution. The demonstration showed how to bang the kettle on the frame joints to loosen them. Clever.
It worked! I’m a believer. Now, if YouTube could only come load our items, drive them to our next location and unpack them.
