Sparknotes written on … thighs. Say what???

25 Mar

I’m pretty sure I don’t have a butt anymore. It’s flat, pancaked, gone–I swear it’s gone. I bet my next paycheck driving from Portland to Phoenix (about 1,300 miles)  in two  and 1/2 days would do that to anyone.

So, to unwind and get back to normal I stop by at Sandra’s Blog for a giveaway and a guest post about communications back in my time and now. Compared to my son—who texts without looking at the screen—my generation wrote notes on tiny pieces of paper, switching several hands until reaching the receiver, mostly at the other site of the class. For finals girls wrote sparknotes on … both thighs, abbreviating words only we could understand. I guess wearing a skirt had its advantages :). Guys on the other hand, wrote on their forearms. Talk about sweating bullets figuratively and literally wearing long-sleeved shirt when, without air conditioner there was no difference between the outside scorching temperatures and the classroom air.

Don’t forget to stop by at Sandra’s to read the guest post and for a chance to win an e-copy of A World Apart.

Happy Sunday everyone!
