When I was a child and one wanted to send a wireless text message to a friend, our messages and emoticons used to look something like this:
TNBE153 RS=TORONTO ONT 2=
MAYOR FOSTER PARODY UPROARIOUS AND EXCESSIVELY DIVERTING STOP VERY AGREEABLE TIME ALL ROUND STOP MUST SEE PICKFORD “MY BEST GIRL” THURSDAY NEXT STOP SHEA’S HIPPODROME SUITABLE QUERY
=C E TAYLOR=
Today, of course, the kids do things differently.
