The only fantasies I ever had as a child involved hotwiring my dad’s Caddy and getting away.

15. How many old cell phones do you own? Two. There’s a cell phone recycling bin at the supermarket, but the idea disturbs me. I can’t bear the thought of someone getting my old phone returning all my calls.
