Sometimes we make compromises with ourselves.

Grandma doesn’t have to know she’s using a “new-fangled internet phone,” okay?

“How’d she take it?”

“Take what?”

“The news. About the VoIP thing you got her.”

“It’s a refurbished Ooma Telo VoIP Home Phone Service, and she took it fine. Why wouldn’t she?”

“She’s old. And old fashioned. She fears technology. She always said she wanted a good ol’ fashioned land line, not some ‘hippity jippity internet phone these kids are using.’ She swore she’d rather die alone than have to call for help on a cell phone.”

“Well as far as she’s concerned it IS a land line, so there’s no harm done.”

“You- You lied? To Grandma? That feels wrong.”

“It’s not a lie! Well, it’s a little white lie; it’s certainly not WRONG. It’s just easier to run the high speed internet through the Ooma, plug in a home phone, and stop paying extra for phone service. The calls in the US are free, and if she suddenly acquires a pen pal overseas it’s only 1.4 cents per minute. The sound quality is superb. She won’t notice a thing.”

“But still. You lied to her.”

“Yes, Michael. Relish the fact that I, a 42-year-old woman, lied to my own elderly mother to avoid an argument over the crushing tide of modern convenience she seems so desperate to avoid in her final few years on this planet. This is definitely the most valuable way to spend your time on the ride back home. Thank you.”
