Sign of the times

Kids have probably been pretending like they were talking on the telephone to each other since the device started appearing in homes regularly. But the other day, I was walking down the street, and saw a little girl — she must've been all of 5 or 6 — standing by herself on the corner, no other children in sight, her hand positioned with thumb to her ear and pinky to her mouth, chatting away to no one in particular, planning some imagined rendezvous. My bet? She was playing Cellphone.
