Words Count challenge -- a Grandparents' poem for today.

Watching the Kids, Learning

The kids were huddled together
Little children, from six to eight
(Ours was seven, sweet granddaughter)
Larger boy showing his iPhone

Grandma said, Must be pretty pics
And Grandpa reasoned, Spelling words?
Oh sure, Grandma he-hawed, smiling
Grandpa checked. What is Pokey Man?

Our Word Quota here for M.Z. is 'No more than sixty words.'  I have forty-seven including my title. She asked us, "What have you observed that was odd, unusual, or just plain weird? Tell me about it in 60 words or less."

This evening we observed our granddaughter while in the playground at McDonalds eagerly comparing iPad notes with a fellow youngster.  This is what they were discussing, the Pokey Man.  There was not Larger boy, I felt this added to the weirdness with a bit of suspicion, "evil minds", a weirdo perhaps.

Haha, Pokemon, Jim! Pokemon! Though I am loving the possibility that they were working on spelling words. :)

LOL...my son is a big Pokemon fan. I've picked up a lot of the terminology by osmosis.

Hysterical, Jim. I love the hilarities born out of exchanges between the very young and the very lived.
