Remember My Promise

This note was found neatly folded on the stairs in my high school.

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.
