I drove by a gas station outside of Elgin recently and not only did they have a payphone, but it was a rotary payphone. I wonder how many of our kids could figure one of those out? I bet not many.

Leave it to Ellen to prove my point. Not only is she a brilliant stand up comedian, but this segment on her show made me laugh and kinda cry. Are we really this old?

Here's the set up:

  • 17 Year Old Girl
  • A Phone Book
  • A Rotary Phone

Look up a specific business and dial them up. Sounds easy, right?
