Family ties

I’ve had people tell me that email communication is wildly inferior to in-person visits or even phone calls. But they’re just different.

My son Peter, who goes by Seebs, mentioned (that is, wrote) that he hadn’t been feeling well, and I replied:
<Makes sad face>
Seebs: You misspelled “:(”
Me: Sorry, I never learned simplified characters.
Seebs: Heh.

We are easily amused.
