When my daughter wants to know what her friends are wearing to a party, she can find out within mere seconds. All she has to do is send out a group text on her cell phone, and she's almost immediately reading her friends' responses. It's a fast-paced, technology-driven world our children's generation is living in.
I'm in my mid-30s, and back in my day, we didn't have cell phones. If I wanted to know what my friends were going to wear to a school dance, for example, I had to call each of them on their family's landlines. It was very time consuming, especially because I didn't have all of their phone numbers memorized, so I had to look up each one in my address book. While it's amazing to see how far we've come with communication and technology, there was such awesome simplicity in the precell phone time. Keep reading to take a trip down memory lane with some of the fun, weird, and pretty cool ways we communicated with our friends before cell phones.
