Archaeologists have uncovered a stone slab with what appears to be the earliest correspondence ever. The hypothesis is that the slab was exchanged with each new entry. Here is a transcript.
Why do you give me this?
No reason. Just Hi.
What you want?
Nothing, just friend. What wrong with that?
Here a small circle has been carved, with a curved line in the lower half, and two dots in the upper.
What this shit?
It’s like face, smiling.
BTW, I have plenty hides, for you, cheap.
Here are just random chips, odd symbols, in a pattern suggesting anger. There appears to be the figure of a man, decapitated. The rest of the slab is blank.
