Gadget freakery

Walkie talkies with the best friend next door late at night, only to find out dad was listening on that new-fangled cordless phone downstairs.

That's funny. After my time funny. But funny. Mrs & me did pick up some cordless conversations on our baby monitor. Early tech. And your story sorta reminds me of my older brother whispering crazy long adventure stories and we giggled maniacally until Dad banged on the wall and screamed "go to sleep!"

Dad was a gadget freak. CB in the T-bird. 16mm camera with stop action was my delight to play with (all the cartoons long lost, alas). I remember when Dad installed a sound system with a turntable that had, get this, two speakers... they played separately!
