Last night daughter and I were coming home from a day of shopping and dinner. On the way up the mountain we were listening to the Top 20. The song “Pay Phone” came on the radio. I asked her why in the world would they call it that? Kids nowadays have no idea what a pay phone is. We then started talking about how different the world was back when I was a kid. It was a few minutes later when Stella asked, how in the world did y’all remember all those telephone numbers? I laughed and told her you can do anything if you put your mind to it and if your teacher put the fear of God into ya. I tell her back then you had to know your phone number by heart in the first grade. They would go down the line several times a year and have you tell your phone number, date of birth, and address. If you were wrong, it was curtains. Then I started telling her I could still remember my phone number from when I was in 1st grade.
Genuinely and without skipping a beat, Stella asks, 1?
Funny but so mean!
