I was working a shift at Bath & Body Works the week before Christmas when I found this folded up on one of the shelves while cleaning up. I hope the maker of this list received at least one of these things for Christmas.
There are six pages with writing in this spiral notebook (with the cover “Orient’e – Authentic Oriental, Made in Japan”), none of which look like they were done by the same person. Following a first page that simply says, “Mike’s Phylosiphy”, and several blank pages interspersed with a crossed out grocery list and a page with the date, Dec. 7 1968, and the single word “Dear,” was this list.
I found this on a table in a coffee shop. There were two unused napkins sitting on the table. When I moved them, I noticed this note written on the bottom napkin. I had to look up the definition of “decorous.”
