I Remember the Rotary Dial


The antiquated device pictured here is not even one of the older versions (you can see that it has push-button technology despite its vintage design). This was how phones looked when I was growing up – they came attached to cords that attached to outlets. It has come to my attention that a millennial or two may have wandered into these parts and have no idea how we used to live on land-lines. This was it, kids. One phone number per household. If you were fancy you might have a three-way-call option (which we did for a brief time). But when I was a child there was no such fanciness. There wasn’t even call waiting. I don’t think kids today know what a busy signal is. They have no idea how less-annoying their existence is.

Anyway, that’s all I got for a Hump Day morning post. Send nudes if you want to be Hunk of the Day. Write a Special Guest Blog if you want to be a featured guest. Do something to join in the fun. Life’s a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death.
