The Day I Got A Note

Okay, I'm sure everyone here most likely sent notes and received notes when they were younger, it's something really nostalgic for me and I have a bunch in a shoebox somewhere that I kept. They were mostly from middle school which was the height of note passing for me and were usually folded into houses and triangle footballs.

Anyway, I was in 8th grade the day I got this particular note and was walking to the band room. One of my friends gave me this note and said they want me to read it by myself. So I walked down the hall a little ways and unfolded the note shaped like an envelope. On the outside it said: "Mariah Private". The note began with a "Dear Mariah" then went to talking how we'd been friends now for a while and how he'd really given this some thought. It said that in the beginning he liked me but then other people swooped in there and started dating me first. Then last night he had a dream where we were dating and it brought it all back. It ended with, and I quote: "So now I'll pop the question: Mariah, will you date me? Cause honey you must be tired you been running through my mind all day long." And it was signed with his name which will not be disclosed since many people reading this blog may know who he is! I randomly think of this note and it always makes me laugh! It's like a guy in a bar throwing out pickup lines, but so innocent since we were so young!

Isn't that note so middle school?
Did you ever pass notes?
Were you ever asked out in a note?

Wow, that note is awesome. And yes I used to have a bunch of notes from middle school. My friend stil has a bunch of old notes and they are all strangely folded and written in a bunch of different colors. Awesome. I did not get any love notes though. You were so lucky.

Haha! You tease! Now I'm totally wondering if I know who it is.
Note passing was the best!

Awww I think that note is so sweet! Lol. How cute. :) And it's funny you keep your notes in a shoebox because I do the exact same with all the notes I collected in middle school and high school! Yay!

It's sad because I have a friend who is a high school teacher and she said note passing is extinct. It's all texting these days. It just seems so impersonal and less nostalgic. I mean, you can't really save texts in a shoebox...sigh.

PS. With my lack of internet, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my friends online, so I apologize immensely for being absent recently. It also occurred to me that I was not following you, and I have most definitely CHANGED that! xo
