I had every intention of going with the sailboat prompt today, but thinking about sailing lead me to think of ships… and then pirates. So, instead of a boat, we ended up with an early form of nautical communication that makes the phone with the curly cord look downright high tech. As a kid, I thought the concept of using a message in a bottle to communicate was a bit ridiculous, since the odds of anyone discovering it seemed so slim. But that didn’t stop me from being perfectly fascinated by the idea of me finding someone’s message in a bottle. Now that would have been awesome. Like stumbling on a mystery that’s waiting to be solved. Granted, this form of communication didn’t exist in the 70’s. People actually sent letters. A behaviour, which many people today might find just as ridiculous as sending a message in a bottle.
