Coke Helps

The students at the high school have been pretty upset since the government mandated healthier food in the vending machines. Apparently this student thought he could give a good persuasive speech about it.

I, Realman

I live near a middle school and high school, and I’m sort of afraid to think that this note was probably generated by one of the high schoolers. My favorite misspelling? “butfile” for what I presume to be “beautiful.” I think this child was left behind.

I’m Really Emotional

I teach at the high school and found this on one of the desks after class. I am happy to not know which of my students left this for me to find.

Dear Dumplin’

I found this in the library at my high school.

Papers Please

This scrap was lying underfoot as I was leaving class.


I found this in the hallway of my high school on my way home a few days ago.

Dotted with Hearts

I found this note on the floor in New Bedford High School– I was walking to class, saw it folded up on the ground, and picked it up. The irony of the dotted-heart i’s and the depressed tone of the note make it very surreal to me.

I Still Like You

Some kid at my high school was throwing this away and I grabbed it from them and ran off. I have no idea who they were and know no more about this letter then you do.


Found behind a file cabinet in the music library of my high school band room.
