I found this note while I was out for a jog. It was sitting on a wet lawn in front of a neighborhood middle school. I ran past it without stopping to look at what it was and I continued on my run. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so instead of doing the normal loop, I went back the same way I had come, and alas, it was still there! I think it was totally worth the re-route! This note has me perplexed. Is it really an apology? It sounds like more of a letter of reprimand! One thing it did confirm to me is that I will NEVER, EVER, EVER teach middle school!

I am helping a friend sell some of her parents stuff and found this note inside a vintage game. Her parents are 100 years old and this game was patented in 1938. Also interesting is that the game was titled “Chinker Chek”, apparently acceptable terminology in the 1920s-1930s, what we know as the game Chinese Checkers.
