I had a student of mine come up and ask me if he could bring something for show and tell. I explained to him that we don't do show and tell in third grade.

He said, "But it's an antique!!"

"Oh? Well, what is it?" I asked.

"It's this really cool old phone that you have to stick you finger in this circle and turn it around to dial. It's really old!"

"Yeah...I don't think it's that old."


  1. That is AWESOME! How surprised would that kid be to find out that we didn't used to have answer machines, or caller ID, or call waiting, or... :)

  2. Forget all that, we had a party line...we had to pick up the receiver and see if our neighbors were on the line before we dialed.

    Yeah...we got in trouble with my mom a LOT for listening in on their conversations! Ha!
