Overheard in the Driveway

C: “Mom, when you were in college and you missed Nana, did you just send her an email?”

Chichimama: “When I was in college there wasn’t really email yet.”

C: ” Well, you had a computer, right?”

Chichimama: “Actually, I went some place called a computer cluster where everyone shared computers.”

C: “Huh. Well, did you call home from your cell phone then?”

Chichimama: “There were no such things as cell phones when I was in college. In fact, for a year I called from a pay phone that I shared with 30 other girls.”

C: “What’s a pay phone?”

Chichimama: “I am getting old.”
