Paging 2000

I was watching the latest episode of New Girl earlier in which they installed a home phone with a cord. And they were behaving as if they have forgotten how did an “old” phone look like, someone even asked why there is a rope (cord).

Come on now! All of them are at least of my age!

And I, along with more than half of the people I know, still have it at our house today. How about at work?

Don’t you use corded phones there as well?

Even if you don’t have it anymore, you surely remember how does a corded phone looks like. Unless you are a really young reader of this blog.

Back to the TV series — It was one bad joke, or maybe it’s me who didn’t get it. Maybe I should re-watch it. I will as long as I can fast forward Jessica Day’s parts because nothing can make me watch her same annoying-ness twice.

That and with Aish poking me on Facebook, reminded me of the time before the new millennium when I got myself a pager. I loved it!

It was a small green and totally cute device. It fitted perfectly in my uniform pocket without raising suspicion at school. I have spent hours waiting for it to flash yellow lighted half encrypted messages from my ex.

His message timing was always random which made it even more exciting.

The pager was my precious, never failed to put a smile on my face. It beeped, vibrated, and made my heart leap.

Good times. At that time at least.

Have you ever owned anything which you mildly embarrassed about now?
