99 Word Prompt: Hands

June 13: Flash Fiction Challenge

“What do you mean you can’t tell time?”

“No one ever showed me how to read a clock.”

“It’s simple.  Short hand points to the hour, long hand points to the minute.”

“Phones these days show time digitally.”

“But your generation is losing old, vital knowledge.”

The kid shrugged.  “You know, you can change the time on your phone from digital to analog.”

“Really?”  The adult pulled out his phone.  He tried to change the settings but became frustrated.  “I can’t figure this thing out!”

The kid held out his hand. “Allow me.  I have the new vital knowledge.”
