While drying my laundry I wondered how it would feel to push those numbers again and connect with someone on the other end of the line? Or see if someone left any change in that little compartment? Not that I ever checked for coins but I had seen it done many a time in the Greyhound bus stations while waiting on a connecting run. A few times while riding the Greyhound I needed to make a phone call. I always carried a new pencil in my bags and would use it to punch the numbers. And I know everyone in the background was watching this Little Lady wearing a black bonnet and a black shawl punching buttons, but I had to do what I had to do.
