Loved this posting, especially since I am teaching college freshmen and women. This posting explains a lot!
I had a similar experience with a rotary phone and my daughters. When my little girl was about six, she went to make a phone call on an old office phone. She literally stopped in her tracks as she bounded toward the phone. She was completely stumped. Once I showed her how to use it, she couldn't get enough of it.
Six years later, she went to a yard sale with her step-sister and came home with a genuine rotary dial Princess phone. Her step-sister came home with an 8 track player and tapes. They treat them as though they were museum pieces.
