Sexting among today’s teenagers was the subject of an email string this morning that eventually took a turn down memory lane, courtesy of a long-time friend who wouldn’t make up stuff like this:

“Which reminds me of a story from 9th grade (1969 or ‘70). I was outside the high school with a couple of friends one morning before homeroom when we noticed some kind of small piece of paper falling from a second-story window. We went over and picked it up, and it wasn’t a piece of paper after all! Rather, it was a still-developing Polaroid of a kid’s (penis) with the handwritten caption, ‘(Not-to-be-named-here kid’s penis.)’  Technology really has come a long way.”

At least that photo didn’t wind up on the Internet.
