Love (or friendship) note left beneath my windshield wiper; my name’s not Maria but my license plate frame says “I’m a librarian and I will shush your ass.” Maria must be pretty awesome since the author says there should be “1 million more of her.” On the other hand, the author wasn’t sure if Maria is a librarian or not, so might not know Maria very well at all. I am a librarian at a local university and was parked in the student lot, so I presume this is from a student, but there are no librarians named Maria on campus. I hope Maria learns someday how highly this author, and presumably others, think of her.
FOUND by David in E train from Queens to Manhattan, New York
Found on the subway. So many things to ponder here: the use of a half of a paper with a pixilated wreath on the back, the date written at the top (the first World Trade Center bombing), the gentle script.
I saw this note lying on the ground, and even before I picked it up I thought, “Wouldn’t it be funny if that is something I could send in to FOUND Magazine?” I put it in the console of my car and forgot about it for almost a year, and just re-found it.
