When you had to walk over *TO* the phone to answer it.

When you could tell people "Missed your call, I wasn't home"

When you listened to a series of squawks, whistles, beeps and shwooshing sounds while connecting to the internet.

When i was a kid, long distance calls were too expensive....so my family used to make sure everyone was safe when traveling...by calling home, person to person for yourself, when we got to our destination, safely...lol.....

I took a road trip, in a car everyone said not to. To let my friends know where I was I would call collect and use my first name and the name of the town as my last name. I thought I was clever, not as original as I thought :)
