Yelin (13 years, Slovenia) texts Omega (13 years, Mexico)

Y: Hey girl, you won’t believe what I found today? πŸ€“

O: πŸ™„

Y: I found mum’s childhood pics…with a lot of people… 🀢πŸ₯‡πŸšͺ

O: “Who were not family? Coz family’s allowed…”

Y: “No, definitely not family.”

O: “😱 What was her excuse?”

Y: “She said it was from her ‘School’, a place where she went to learn new things along with nearly 500 others! πŸ€“”

O: Liar! πŸ€₯

Y: No! She showed me old pictures of this ‘School’ on internet. It does exist. πŸ™‚

O: Was it open air? Cave-man style? πŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ

Y: Proper buildings. There were rooms with enough desks to house fifty people at a time. 🏒

O: 50 kids in the same room? It is downright dangerous! Didn’t they know it spreads germs? 😨

Y: She said it was before the germs took over our lives. Her friends played with her in places called parks. And she went on ‘real dates’– πŸš— long drive, dancingπŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί in disco and 🍷🍸🍹 drinking together in pubs…

O: Yuk! So much exposure! Seriously! She must be reading too much fantasy to come up with stories like that.
