Telephone Exchanges (Adapted from a post on one of my old blogs)

Nowadays, telephone numbers are just that: Numbers.
There are times, even after so many years, that I wish we could go

back to using exchange names.  To me, the numbers 33,74, and 89 can never replace DEwey, SHeepshead, and TWining. 
And the numbers 64 (not 64, but the individual numbers 6 and 4) are a very poor substitute for what, to me, was the prettiest exchange name of all. My exchange. NIghtingale.
