Me: Hi Grammie, how are you?
Grandma: Good Billy, how is school?
Dad: Okay, that's enough, hand the phone to your sister!

Seriously, a minute of LD cost about 2 bucks. I guess life was simpler, and conversations were ridiculously short.
Yeah, it was nice when I was in Korea because we had video chat then. I remember the same conversations with my uncle back in the early 90's when he was stationed overseas.
