Me:  Jenny, did you see this?

Jenny:  [ignoring me, cooking pasta]

Me:  Jenny, take your damn ear buds out!

Jenny:  Sorry.  What?

Me:  Did you see that trading on the Nasdaq has been halted for over an hour?

Jenny:  Something’s wrong with the internet?

Me:  Not the internet, the Nasdaq.

Jenny:  Oh, good. [puts ear buds back in]

Me:  Jenny!

Jenny:  What?

Me:  Do you even know what the Nasdaq is?

Jenny:  Nope.

Me:  It’s a stock exchange.  Twenty percent of the stocks in the S&P 500 can’t trade at all now, like Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon.

Jenny:  That’s bad.  Do you know what I’m listening to?  Katy Perry.  Just all her songs, on loop.

Me:  You’re the worst.  I’m going back to work; clean up your mess when you’re done.

Jenny:  Okay.  Bye, Daddy!  Love you!

  1. That’s Jenny. This is awesomeness. I mean, sort of. I guess it would be more awesome if she started talking to you about the Nasdaq. You might be impressed that it prompted me to look and see what’s up with halted trading.
