Old Phone

It was a dime to make a call. That would be all of my life into adulthood. When Dave was a teen the price finally began to rise steadily to reach a quarter. He was incensed, “The bastards…” By then cellphones came into wide use and pay phones disappeared. A bright recollection was during the “2003 blackout” in NYC when everyone was lined up ten deep at the payphones. There was no cell service. The system did not have backup generators. Ha!

The “real” old phone looks like a face. I’m sure you noticed.
