It was about ten years ago that the notebook was begun. I was in high school, and my friends and I passed this around, writing in it notes and stories. Our notes were our weekend plans; our stories were written piece by piece, each of us adding a twist to the plot schemes.
Classic stories include getting stuck in K-Mart overnight (Attention K-Mart Stalkers!), a kidnapping, a royal wedding, and many more. Not to mention the regular chitchat about Friday night's dance or an upcoming birthday.
