Tell Your Grandkids How You Texted in the Old Days

Posted: February 17, 2012 in Writing

In our day, if we wanted to text someone, we used to write stuff on a piece of paper, then fold it up and stick inside of another piece of paper. Then we stuck a third piece of paper to the outside. After that we walked out of the house and put it in a box by the street. Sooner or later, someone drove by in a truck and got it out of our box and put it in their box. After driving around doing this all day, they took all the boxes to a building and took everything out of the boxes and put it in other boxes. Then someone took everything out of those boxes and put them in other boxes. Then they loaded those boxes onto other trucks. Somebody drove those trucks all over the country and unloaded the boxes into another building. Then someone took everything out of those boxes and put them into other boxes. Then they loaded those boxes onto trucks and someone drove around all day and put everything into those little boxes by the road. Finally whoever you were texting would walk out to the street and get your note. It took a week for someone to get your note and you paid fifty cents for every text.
