“So, what’s your number?”

Side Story :

For those of you whose youth is before cellphone(s) era, do you remember how you exchange contact with your friends? in particular, your date?

I remember using my home phone number for that.

I wonder if there were other options.

  1. Hmmm.. home phone number.. essentially. :) And email too… I remember using email way before I got a cell-phone.
    Lovely silhouette.

    • Ah, yes… e-mail. I started using e-mail when I was in late years of college, so phone number definitely is the main ‘contact’ number.
      Thanks, Helder.

  3. Nice caption and photo, GM.

    Home phone number. And then there were no call waiting, so if the line is busy, you just have to hang up and try again later. Cannot imagine having to live with that now :).

      Hahahaha… yes, you mention something very important. Today, we have been blessed with a lot of innovation in telecommunication, haven’t we?

    • I think that key chain is attached to the bag — not to the phone. But, yeah, key chain (attached to phones, bags, purse, and of course, keys) is la mode in Japan :D…
