Maybe someday they'll invent a phone that stays in one place so it won't get lost. It won't drop calls or need to be charged at the most inconvenient time. Oh, wait! I think they did that already - half a century ago. Do you like our rotary phone? We've had it forever, and when someone asks to use our phone (because their cell phone is dead) they say, "How does it work?" Sometimes you just don't have time to bake your own cookies. Fig bars (we used to call them fig newtons) with a square of chocolate make a dandy substitute.
