“Kiel and I found this phone at an antique store near Huntington, Long Island,” says Boatright. “My childhood friend’s older sister, Jessie Robinson, had one in her bedroom growing up, which made it the coolest ever. Finally I have one in my home, and I feel like I’ve arrived.” Adds Mead: “The phone barely works, and when it goes off, it’s the scariest sound. The only people who ever call on that phone are solicitors, and it’s the loudest thing ever.”
