Day Seventy-Two: Old School

Old School:  December 11, 2008
This is my office phone at school. It's practically an antique at this point. I mean, it not only has these old-fashioned buttons, but it also has a handset that rests in a cradle, and a cord! In my normal, everyday life, it's easy to forget that we ever relied on phones that looked like this and that couldn't be carried around with us at all times. But the ubiquity of cellphones is still relatively new, after all. When I was a kid, we had this kind of phone at home in the kitchen and, in my mom's bedroom, we had a rotary phone (you know, where you literally dial the number).
