Exaggeration for effect
So many things magically disappear when you're a kid. Skype adds a who raft of potential trauma to this trend, perhaps. My kids have quite a few primarily skype-based relationships - and all of them function better if the keyboard is out of reach.
However, unseen is not quite the same as gone. This is a pale lie, a stretch rather than an untruth. But, mIght a two year old be deceived?
