In addition to "born in a barn," I also still refer to that thing that keeps

our food cold as an "ice box," although we haven't had one since the sixties.

I buy a "bottle of milk," although I haven't seen a glass milk bottle since

about the same time (are thos plastic jugs considered bottles?). When we

go to the movies and we walk inside the theater, we are going to a "movie

house," according to my vocabulary.

Here's another :-), I have an 8-track tape player in my car (Oh My God!).
