Old School Stuff
Flip phones are apparently making a comeback. They're more durable than smartphones, and the batteries last longer. Plus, people are getting sick of being so connected. Anything else you wish would make a comeback?

Wrong Ring, or Wrong Woman?
We got a call this morning from a listener who didn't like the ring her boyfriend proposed with. You won't believe what she told him:
Date Night - Just for Couples with Kids?
We got this email this morning:
Bill & Julie,
I have a couple of friends who have been dating for a while. They live together and are pretty serious. They aren't married, and they don't have any kids.
On Friday, the woman in the relationship posted that they were super excited for "DATE NIGHT" together. I couldn't help but laugh. Isn't every night a date night when you don't have kids?
I know Julie doesn't have kids, but do you need to schedule a date night?
I understand that life can get busy and sometimes, even without kids, couples need to set aside some time to focus on each other, but now that we have a kid I realized that I didn't understand what busy was before. I have heard Bill talk about his kids for years, but had NO idea how much work kids require. In fact, I realized that the past 11 years we've been together was basically one big date night!
Am I wrong to think this way? Or should the term "DATE NIGHT" be left specifically for couples with kids?
