"All they had was black-and-white TV, so they probably sat around conversed all the time. On the phone, sure, but more in person. Not like now, where I go to the grocery store to buy herbal tea for my sick sister and the guy next to me starts discussing what flavor of Rice-A-Roni is best. Of course I answer chicken, only to find he's talking to his wife on one of those earpiece thingies. Then he gives me a weird look, like talking to the air is normal, and buys the beef flavor anyway. Beef rice? Honestly."
And....she IS me. Chicken and real conversations every time.
