I have been having fun talking about these notes on Facebook today. Do you remember passing notes in school that were folded like this? For me I think we started using them in junior high and it went all the way through high school (80’s). My friends and I constantly passed notes to each other. Even better was when you had a boyfriend (or girlfriend, whatever your preference) to pass them too and draw little hearts and I love you’s all over them.
I made one (thanks to the help of Terri, a high school friend) and showed it to my son (17). I asked if he knew what it was, it took him a second. He did know it was a note but only because one of his teachers last year had done “back when I was in school” sort of thing and had shown the class the notes. He never has actually seen them “in use” himself though.
What about you? Do you remember these?
