The second calls became free at 9PM, I would talk to my girlfriends on the phone until it died. Just to ask them to call my dad’s landline, or have me call them from it, if I was home and no one else was using it.
Also, I now have a 13 year old and 10 year old. The 13 year old uses his gaming headset much how you and I used phones back in their heyday. I love hearing him talk (until I don't, lol) like I used to! My 10 year old video chats with friends a lot. I realize I have not pointed out a Millennial generation here, but my kickass former supervisor is one and I recently had a phone call with her due to Covid. It was so nice just talking on the phone and catching up! It really hurts my heart that an entire generation is experiencing such high proportions of loneliness.
