I hadn’t done this silly juvenile thing for years – but I was trying to help my 8-year-old son Orlando settle into his new school. To take his mind off his shyness I showed him something that was “cool” when I was a kid – calculator spelling.
You should have seen the big smile beam across his face! I showed him 0.7734.
0.7734 – on calculator displays looks like HELLO.
Then of course there were all the silly and juvenile schoolboy type words like 8008 and 58008 and 55378008!
As I said – this hadn’t crossed my mind in ages – calculator spelling that is – not 58008!
Trying to be a “Cool Dad” – Here’s how uncool dad looked back in the 70s when long hair and calculator spelling were popular. I loved those days of the old schoolyard!
Orlando loves hearing stories about the “olden days”!
