Daily Prompt: Notorious

My first thought on today’s Daily Prompt is that song.  I mean, COME ON.

Which leads me to…

When I was in middle school, my friends and I thought we were really clever.

When we wrote notes to each other, instead of using our real names we created code names.  That way, if a teacher caught us, or if we lost any of them, we would be in the clear!

My code name was Duran Duran.  I am totally serious.

Another friend was Thompson Twins and a third friend was Culture Club.  (Wait?  Or was *I* Thompson Twins?  GAH.  I have a tin of my old notes from middle school. I am going to go check right now!)

Fun Fact Friday 4/4/14

When I was in Junior High School, I was quite the little note-writer.  Come on, though.  That’s what preteen girls did, right?  Write notes to each other at school!

A few friends of mine and I thought we were really smart and decided to make “Code Names” for ourselves.  That way…if we lost one of the notes, or a teacher caught us while we were writing or reading, the other person wouldn’t get caught!

My Code Name was “Duran Duran”.  Another friend’s name was “Thompson Twins” and I remember a 3rd being “Culture Club”.

 I loved the 80’s!
