The Divine Fax

I had to send a fax, and found this on the fax machine. I would like to imagine he faxed it into a prayer hotline and that it was read aloud on the air. I can’t imagine why else you would fax a prayer, unless you had a direct line to heaven.

Cat in The Hat

I found this tithe envelope in a hymnal while attending my little sister’s Christmas concert a couple years ago. I’ve held onto it ever since because I love the youthful stream of consciousness and the memories of daydreaming in church.

I found this piece of paper in the street while waiting for my dog to poop in the neighbor’s yard on 19th and California St.

A Big Surprise

My roommate found this in our mailbox right before Christmas. Apparently, there is a total nutjob in our neighborhood. The hand drawn map is the best thing … check out the continent of “Lesbians.” Wow.
