FOUND by Charlie Grillo in Central Connecticut State University, New Britain, Connecticut
I found this while walking around my college campus. The back reads: “Project save the end of my summer”.
My thoughts were why would someone who is clearly bold, proactive and extremely extroverted need to solicit for a boyfriend? Then again who would agree to be boyfriend in a relationship that by design was never going to last? What would this “nothing to lose”, “the end in near” type of attitude have on the conventional dating experience? The whole idea seems like a setup to a cheesy rom-com, but fact usually is stranger than fiction, so who knows what this summer will hold.
I found this waiting for a doctor’s appointment, neatly folded on a chair. My main question is whether this was returned to the note-writer this way, or if the recipient circled their response but never returned it.
FOUND by Deanna in the Acton Public Library, Old Saybrook, Connecticut
I found this on page 25 of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. From the inferred maturity of the writer, I assume that the mom was the reader of the book. My favorite part is the “Answer here” line on the left side of the page.
FOUND by Justin in between Connecticut or Pennsylvania
I found this on the outskirts of a rest stop while driving with a friend from Milford, CT, to Doylestown, PA. I was walking Chico (the friend’s dog) and stumbled upon this scrap of paper blending in with the grass.
Whenever I go to the grocery store, I pick up any discarded shopping lists I see (it’s my voyeuristic side). I found this one a few years ago. Totally normal on one side, and HELLO, pure pre-adolescent genius on the other.
