A long time ago (for you, not for me), humans who wanted to talk to each other had to look at each other’s faces and talk with their voices. If they were not close to each other, they had to talk very loudly. In a windy place like me, this does not always work.
Because humans were tired of looking at each other or shouting while they were talking, they invented the sími.
It means “tele-phone”.
“Sími” is much older than a sími. It used to mean “thread”, but my people “re-cycled” it. (They like to do that with old words.)
The man on the picture is using a “snjall-sími”, which means “a smart phone”, but I have noticed that not all humans who use snjall-símar are snjall-humans.
Many humans like talking on their sími, even if they are in restaurants. The people who help me with this inter-net do not like this very much.
P.S. The picture is made by a snjall-man called “Breiðholt”. I will tell you later what this means.
