I was watching The Wonder Years and there was a scene with Kevin Arnold passing notes in class. There’s something special about passing notes. You jot something down on piece of paper and pass it over to a friend when the teacher’s back is turned. They write something back while you anxiously await their response. They slyly return it when the teacher’s not looking. It was like texting before there was texting. Hell, it was better than texting. It was more personal, immediate, and thrilling because you could get in trouble for it. And you could save a really good note as a memento or trophy. I don’t know if kids pass notes in class anymore. I’m sure some do, but they probably use their smartphones for the majority of their illegal classroom socializations.
