I could never program a girl’s number into my speed dial. There would be too much of a chance that her phone would ring before I hung up. If I had to punch in each number individually… slowly… it would give me plenty of time to chicken out before hitting that last number. Of course this was back when the telephone was the main source of communication for these type of things. Now I imagine people typing a message into an IM window and then gently resting their finger on the return key… staring at it… daring themselves to push it. I guess it’s all still buttons.
