Romeo and Juliet - via txt msg Part 1

We looked at this video (below) of the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet and decided we would have a go at rewriting our favourite scenes as if the characters were sending text messages to each other. The good thing about this is that we don't have to be accurate with our punctuation, spelling and grammar.
