Phones have been around longer than I have, and I used the mail more before the internet.
I remember when we got our first phone, it was a two party line.
Before that the mail was means of communication fir people out of town. Walk down the street to talk to neighbors.
I rarely use my cell phone. I still write letters by hand, but not as much since the advent of email.
The first landline phone number I remember from my childhood about 65 years ago had only 5 digits. Before I moved to Texas, they added an exchange, "Cherry" plus the five digits.
Land lines and answering machines until, for me, the internet in the early 90's.
Never was a letter writer of any kind. My father's sister always sent me a $3.00 check for my birthday and I equated a thank-you note withe pulling a tooth. I finally stopped cashing the check so that I wouldn't have to write the thank you note. (ADD people like myself dread producing written output.)
I avoid Skype like the plague---I tend to wear just underwear around the house.
Email---or reluctantly, text---is preferred by me now.
US mail and visiting.
I was a kid so things like ride my bike outside. Now I don't know what outside is.
Kidding but I could spend less time on the internet.
Go outside play games, study and help out the community. For that matter still do.
Landline phone. We had a party line growing up. Private lines cost more. Eventually everyone on our partyline got private lines. We still had a party line with no one else on it. The only problem with that is you couldn't use a touch tone phone. It had to be a rotary phone. Oh how I hated phone numbers with 8s and 9s.
Most of my internet usage is to get information. Before the internet that meant a trip to the library.
