Phone Calls from Work
Now that he's so far away during the day, those pay phone calls would have cost us a fortune. Have you ever called long distance from a pay phone? Probably not. Do you even remember what long distance is? We're so spoiled, aren't we?
Since we talk often, the conversations can become a little mundane. Here's one from yesterday:
Hubby: What's for dinner?
Me: Roast beef.
Me: Why do you say that?
Hubby: What is roast beef?
Me: You like that.
Hubby: I used to, but the last time you made it, it was ewww.
Me: (offended) What?! No it wasn't!
Hubby: Oh, you mean roast beef with potatoes and carrots and stuff?
Hubby: Oh, yeah, I like that.
Me: Then what were you talking about that was gross?
Hubby: I think that was meatloaf.
Me: I've never made meatloaf in my entire life.
Hubby: No, it wasn't yours. It was from KFC.
Me: Ewww, that does sound gross!
Hubby: OK, I'll talk to ya later then.
Me: OK, bye.
See...that's what I'd be missing out on if we were still in the pre-cell phone days.
