Texting has become the new note passing. Having been born in the 80s, I remember the days of handwritten notes being passed around in class with “Do you like me? Circle One: Yes/No.” But my 6th grader little sis doesn’t face having bits of paper confiscated by an annoyed teacher—she loses her phone for the day. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the text message, Moleskine has created a different kind of SMS—the Shooting Message System. Instead of wirelessly sending SMS messages, you can fling little notes across the room to your crush that say things like “I Love You” or “Call Me.” Although I doubt kids would get the last one—no one uses their phone as a phone anymore.
