Worlds Colliding (three generations)

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Worlds Colliding.”

I don’t know how long ago I read a National Geographic article of which the jest of the story has long since been lost on me except for three sentences.

The scene is in Alexander Graham Bell’s home. His daughter is a young woman, and his granddaughter is about four years old.

Paraphrasing: The granddaughter disturbs her mother with a question.

“WHAT DID GRANDFATHER DO?”

“Your grandfather invented the telephone.”

“oh.”
