What's Your Number?

FutureLawyer wonders if phone numbers are heading for the scrap pile.

A question for those who may be sipping Sanka and thumbing through tapioca recipes: Do you remember when phone numbers had rather colorful prefixes?

Our prefix was Crestwood. Sounds rather nice, doesn't it? It evokes shade and cool breezes; not exactly an accurate description of our Phoenix neighborhood, but Oven was already taken.

We lost something civilized when the prefixes went away.
