This is the end of a 6 page transcribed text message conversation. Basically, the two girls are arguing over who slept with which boy, and who was dating who at the time.

Big Toe!!

I found this in a old china hutch that was purchased from a thrift store. I have no idea who she is or where she was at but she looks happy!
