Chapter 82 in my book "Life was Better. Rotary Phones & One TV Channel: One woman's story"

We only got CBS out of Topeka which, full disclosure, did totally suck; we didn't get Charlie's Angels OR Mork and Mindy. So uncool. Plus party lines sucked.

But other hand, when I was a girl, a boy who wanted to ruin your reputation could only get as much distance on his tale as his human voice would carry; rotary phones slow a guy down when he's torn between pride and contempt, is what I'm saying. Thinking on that, I wouldn't be 18 again for ready money ("ready money", for the zero weans reading this, means "cash"). For sure, THIS never happened to anyone:

Poor Taiwan. Study hard and get good rest before the final, you'll be ok. And quit burning it at both ends; I heard how you kids do, today.  Tsk, tsk.

 

But this....sorry, kiddo, this is some Quality Twitter:
