As a school girl, I was the queen of writing notes to my classmates. I can't recall when I began participating in such behavior, however I recall being busted time and again for passing notes. Sometimes they were short. Sometimes they were long. Sometimes they were filled with secrets about which boy I was crushing that week. Sometimes they were TO that boy I was crushing that week. Writing notes really got us through high school. They kept us from falling asleep and helped pass time in study hall. They truly were a survival tool for female students.
The other day I was exchanging Facebook messages with a friend and actually said the words, "Longer Letter Later" when it dawned on me, I hadn't jotted those three words down in eons. Do you remember writing such cutesy things like this? I sure do. I've made a quick list of the fun terms I loved using back then. Please feel free to add yours in the comments section.
- L.Y.L.A.S = "Love Ya Like A Sister"
- WB or WBS = "Write Back" or "Write Back Soon!"
- Best Friends 4Eva with the line in the 4 attaching to the E
- LYL = "Love You Lots"
- XOXO = hugs and kisses
- Boys B4 Books
- KIT = "Keep in Touch"
- Wuz Hea
- SSS = "Sorry So Sloppy"
- Buy Ya Bubble Gum = I added this one in as a joke. It's something my little brother and I would say to my mom before we'd go to bed every night. It meant "I love you"
