Before there was instant messaging or text messaging, there was passing a piece of paper back and forth scribbling out a conversation. I found this note whilst cleaning out old boxes in our shed. It was a conversation in a class with one of my best uni friends. I think it was in 1994 – thirteen years ago. Woo. And yeah, I don’t think we paid much attention to the lecture.
Her words are in black, and mine are in blue. We talked about why men are always horny, relationships, her insecurities with her boyfriend who was back in Malaysia while she was here in Perth studying, and random girls in class who we thought were cute. Most of the conversation was carried out on that piece of paper but some of it were spoken. So parts of it that is on paper may seem disjointed because we switched back and forth between the spoken and written forms.
Looking at it really brought back memories. It was crude and you have to be physically close to each other to do it, but you definitely can’t recreate the tangible feel of it with IM or text-messaging. Think I should frame it?
