If I really want to communicate with family or close friends, I still prefer the phone, too. I just prefer setting up the time by email if possible so I won’t be in the middle of cooking dinner when the call comes. People seem to be much busier now than when I was young, and I’m always afraid I’ll catch someone at a bad time.

I do miss getting real letters, but I don’t much miss writing them. My keyboard is my friend.
