The Apple and the Tree

Yesterday my eight-year-old and I had the following conversation:

John: Dad, do you know a lot about computers?”
Dad: I know my share.”

John: But do you really know a lot?”
Dad: I know pretty much.”

John: What buttons to you press to make that come up (pointing to the Start button)?”
Dad: Ctrl+Esc”

John: And how to you make it do Run?”
Dad: Ctrl+Esc+R”

John: Cool.”

Cool indeed. : )
