I was laughing along. I used all those things and I’d forgotten but you’re right…I had all my friends phone numbers memorised off by heart in case I had to use a phone box to call them (they’re almost extinct now too). My parents were strict so sometimes I didn’t want to sit on the landline where they could hear me. Great post!
