I remember there were these things called pagers which you could call but they would only beep. I would dial a number at a pay phone. Then I would enter something like 420-20-911, followed by my phone number. Sometimes they would call back, other times I'd have to go find them. I never have to find anyone anymore. I don't have to even remember anything anymore. I was never much good at remembering things anyway.
I still remember my old house number, my grandma's number and the number of a few of my friends. I think that's kind of cool, but it is also going to date me horribly. I'm probably the youngest person alive that remembers a life before technology. When I'm 60 I'm going to be telling all these young whipper-snappers what it was like before facebook and twitter. Then I'll get really annoyed because they'll ask me what facebook and twitter are. I'll laugh and say, that's how I used to stalk your mom. Then I'll smile and say, if only birth control was digitized.
