The Lost Art of the Phone Conversation
“The telephone is a good way to talk to people without having to offer them a drink.” ~Fran Lebowitz
You know what I miss? Phone conversations. Remember those? I remember talking on the phone for hours on end with friends during my teenage years. Such a good way to catch up with people at the end of the day.
In the day and age of texting and IM messages, it seems as if good old-fashioned phone conversations have become a thing of the past. I have several friends that I mainly only correspond with via text-messaging. We all get so busy with our day-to-day lives that it seems the most convenient and preferred method of conversation/correspondence.
Now I am well-aware that many people have a complete aversion to telephone conversations (my dad loathes talking on the phone), but I have always loved them myself.
Perhaps we can start a revolution and bring phone conversations back from the brink of extinction :-)
What about you? Do you feel that phone conversations have lost their importance in the age of texting?
