On Video Phones and Capturing Priceless Moments

Written by dad - One Comment

I’ll readily admit that I’m a gadgety kind of guy. If it’s fancy, new, and electronic, then I’m probably interested. That being said, even I didn’t get attraction of camera phones when they first came out, much less video phones. But when my last cell phone died, I replaced it with one that was capable of capturing both still photos and short videos. And boy am I glad that I did. No, I don’t use those features all that often. But when I do, the results can be priceless.

Perhaps the best example of this was the time that my three and five year old sons (now four and six) discovered a rack of auto-inflating Whoopie Cushions in the toy aisle at our local Walgreens. The beauty of these ‘next-generation’ Whoopie Cushions is that, as their name implies, there’s no need to reinflate them between uses — just get up and they’re ready to go again almost immediately.

Given the above, I’m sure you can imagine how happy I was to be able to whip out my cell phone and capture the live-action hilarity when my boys started bouncing up and down with their butts on the Whoopie Cushions in the middle of the aisle. No, the resolution isn’t great, but it’s good enough to see what’s going on, and you can hear them loud and clear as they were brag about who is the loudest and giggle about how the ‘fart monster’ is coming to get them. As I said above, priceless.
