Lol, a great little story showing how much Barnabas really has to catch up AND adjust to his new relationship with Victoria. Well done! :D

Great little fic.
Imagine if Collinwood is on a party line and Barnabas has to remember which ring tone is for them?
BTW, when is this fic set? It's supposed to be around Christmas, but as Collinwood has -apparently- been rebuilt, I'd suspect it was a year following the film. (I'd allow at least three months to rebuild the house...Unless Barnabas' "influence" could motivate the contractors to get it up in time for Christmas of '72...Or at least rebuilt enough that they could move back in.) I just wonder as I would think Barnabas would have at least taken notice of the telephone before this.
I can't help but laugh thinking of what lies ahead for Barnabas...i.e. His trying to figure out VCR's, home computers and cell phones. (Carolyn: "Barnabas...You've GOT to learn to lock your key pad. You butt-dialed me again when you sat down.")
Carolyn's joke at the end was funny...But would Barnabas "get" it? I sort of suspect most of the things she would say would go right over his head.
BTW, it's touching that Barnabas would be worried about Victoria going into town. However, she IS a vampire so she's pretty much safe from any untowards elements in Collinsport.
I wonder if Barnabas has some culture shock with Christmas and how it's celebrated in the present day. At the time of the American Revolution (when Barnabas was entombed) Christmas had fallen out of favour in the newly independent colonies as it was seen as an "English" tradition. It wasn't revived until the 1820's.
I'd love to see more of your one-shots about Barnabas' adjustment to the 20th Century. Would he dare try and use the washing machine? LOL
Great job. I'm looking forward to more. :-D

Excellent characterizations here especially Liz! Barnabas was spot on too towards the end. I hope DS keeps you stimulated for a bit.. Its unpredictable what you come up with! Unlike this kid. :P
