Just another shadow in a dream.
… there was a phone booth. No one was quite sure why the hell it was there – it wasn’t conveniently located, and at first, only a few people knew about it. Apparently, there’s now a movie about it starring Steve Guttenberg.
Eventually, someone pinpointed its location and looked up the number. Thanks to the internet, it became a phenomenon of sorts – people would wait for days at the MPB to talk to the random people who would call; they were reaching out to random strangers the old fashioned way instead of say… here.
Eventually, the phone company decided that it was a losing proposition to have a vandalized phone booth that essentially only received calls, and tore it down. There are fan pages, petitions, and all the typical armchair activist stuff that’s endemic to the internet trying to get it back. For now, it’s gone.
