Future Miss America

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.

The Freshest Breath

Found this in the Pentagon, where I work. Looks like someone sent a care package to an airman who clearly deployed with his sense of humor.

A Less Difficult World

Found this note on the title page of a secondhand copy of a book of Adrienne Rich poetry. I like to think Doris gave Sam the book early on in their courtship, and I hope things worked out for them!
