Please Don’t Hate Me

Found this in puddle beside my car in the parking lot at East Tennessee State University while leaving campus on a rainy afternoon in October.

Weightless Status

I found this on the ground next to a park bench by a lake.

The Raspberries

Found it at San Diego State’s library. I was leaving to go to my next class, and I found this torn note.

Red Shorts Boy

At Coachella, my friend Phil was attracting all the men because all he was wearing were these red booty shorts. I guess the boys who parked next to us wanted to get in them– we found this on our windshield!

So Here I Am

I work at a downtown public library and found a series of notes written on small sheets of scrap paper that we use to jot down titles, call numbers, etc. It took me a few minutes to put the cards in order, and was thrilled when I discovered I had all the pieces.

I Want Details

I found this in the grass outside of the mental health office where I work. I don’t think Bre followed the directions from her mom very well.

Debauched Love

I was checking out a copy of A Million Little Pieces by James Frey at the public library and when I got home this note fell out of the book.

The Mind of Sarah

A friend of mine (janitor) found a diary while taking out the trash. Sarah is just your average boy crazy 5th grader.

Like, Squared

Found soaked in the runoff of a snowbank in my doctor’s office parking lot early one morning — this sticky-noted assertion pasted to a piece of blue lined paper. (Blue, it’s useful to note, is the color of like like. And anyone with experience will tell you that like like = love.)

Two Lonely American Psychos

The title page from American Psycho complete with an endearing note to a former, but apparently still swooning lover.
