FOUND by Megan in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
I found this old poem in a board game at my parents’ cabin. My parents bought the game many years ago at a yard sale and never before noticed the paper under the game’s contents. The game is the Canadian trivia challenge “for all ages,” Tour de Force.
This was found in a copy of Mother Night at the public library. I read a lot but don’t discuss books much, so it was wonderful to find this from an unknown fan of one of my favorite writers. Yes, I returned the book with the note in it.

I found this cute little note in the ladies bathroom on Valentine’s Day. I went to reach for a paper towel, and there it was, stuck to the dispenser. Obviously someone wanted to make a stranger smile. It worked! I smiled the rest of the day.
I found this letter while straightening up the waiting room at a children’s facility. I look at all of the patients we saw that day to see if I could find their name so we could return the letter, but we couldn’t find it. It was too cute to throw away!
I was going to take the 2:20pm train from Richmond, CA, to Sacramento, CA, but I had just missed it. While waiting for the 3:48pm I found this picture face down on the tracks. Sometimes it not so bad to miss a train. Written on the back: “hey! i’m 1 & i got daddy confused about his age 2. ha ha ha 1/07.”
