“It’s a phone booth” says an amused mother to her confused looking son.
“Is this a old fashioned phone?” he replies.
Well Jake, it’s actually a pay phone not a phone booth. A phone booth is a stand alone box with a pay phone in it that previous generation’s Supermans used to use to change into costume. Doctor Who also uses one to travel in.
I’m sure those answers would have made Jake feel just as confused as he made us feel old.
Maybe one day in the not so distant future our kids or grand kids will be asking us why did we carry such expensive and fragile phones in our pockets.
