Dad was in the middle of a science lesson and Spark asked, "Could you pause for a minute?" Now when I was in 4th grade I may have said, "Could you hold for a minute?" A phrase that probably came about after the invention of telephones. But I never would have said "pause." Of course, when I was in 4th grade I had never even heard of a video game or anything else that would pause, okay, maybe a cassette player. I take using the term "pause" as a sign that our kids live in a very technological world.
