I guess the best answer is my cell phone.
I find this rather amazing that in a just a few years society
has gone from not being easily accessible away from a home or office to being accessible 24/7.
I remember the days of payphones
I remember when I got my very first address book and my grandmother gave me $.10
in case of needing to make an emergency call.
Yeah, it was $.10 back then.
My kids won't ever use a payphone.
I also remember that back when we had a trailer down in Deltaville,
we didn't have a phone in the house.
This was not an issue when I was under the age of 13,
but when you get to high school and you have a boyfriend
you can't bear to go a whole week without talking to
your only option was walking/biking to the Little Sue
with a bucket of change and calling from the payphone.
|The phone used to be located between the window and the ice chest.|
Now there's talk of getting rid of the house phone because we all have cell phones.
(and I've noticed now that I don't even like to talk on my cell phone.
I'd rather someone just text me)
