With all of the data and all of the gigs
And all of the digital stuff.
With social media and other pains,
Mom had just had enough!
She turned off accounts and unplugged some things
And headed for days of Yore.
But those daughters of hers thought a
Rotary phone was taking things way too far!
They talked and they schemed and price compared
And headed for Best Buy with a plan.
"We'll get mom a real phone, with caller ID!"
"Cordless, if we can!"
So much excitement. So much fuss.
All over a telephone!
They had it packed, and boxed and shipped
Right to her very home.
Mom likes her old phone, it's fun to dial,
It's a novelty item, I swear!
So you can't hear on it, so you can't...
Wait! UPS just got here!!
OMG! I love this thing!
It has an answering machine and 3 extensions!!
I can actually hear when people call me
And I know who they are before they mention!
So Merry Christmas to me
Let the phone bells chime!
Have a wonderful evening
And give me a call sometime!!
