CALL ME

I love to sing along with the Marvelettes’ catchy 1962 hit single, “Beechwood 4 5 7 8 9.”  

            Remember letter exchanges in phone numbers? Ours was Willow 2 1774.  For easy access, it was imprinted on the dial. “WI-2…” My brother added “soff” so it read “Wisoff 2-1774.”  

            The telephone has certainly evolved. Before 1954, you relied on the operator from the one and only Telephone Company to reach your party.

            I’m as guilty as the next person of attachment to my cell.   

            Hey, Baby Boomers—just for fun—how many Millennials does it take to dial a rotary phone?

DIAL TONE

            The phone rang.

            Tammy pouted. “It’s probably for Bobbie.”

            “She’s on a date,” said Grandma. “Go answer the Ameche.”

            “The A-what-chee?”

            The ringing stopped.

            “That’s what we called the telephone when I was a girl.” Grandma popped a VHS tape in the VCR. “Sit. I’ll make popcorn.” 

            “‘The Story of Alexander Graham Bell?’” Tammy read the case and groaned. “This movie’s older than dirt.”   

            Bobbie came home just as Don Ameche and Loretta Young exchanged loving smiles. “What’s with the black and white moldy oldie?”

            The phone rang.

            “Rad flick.” Tammy brushed a stray tear. “Better answer the Ameche, sis.”
