One ringey-dingey. Two ringey-dingies. A Gracious Hello! Have I reached the party to whom I am speaking? Lily Tomlin as Ernestine the telephone operator - she still cracks me up. Do you remember? The sour look on her face? The snort with the laugh? The hairdo? When's the last time you saw something that funny on TV? Maybe I've turned into one of those old people who start each sentence with: why, back in my day.............I had to walk 2 miles to my one room school and it was uphill both ways!! Wait a minute - I did go to a one-room school! No hills tho, we lived in the Red River Valley - flat as a table. Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'm not as old as that makes me sound but I'll never see 20 again. Or 30. Or 40. Yikes.
