Please Don’t Hate Me

Found this in puddle beside my car in the parking lot at East Tennessee State University while leaving campus on a rainy afternoon in October.

Special Dad

I don’t remember where I found this, most likely at a garage sale or thrift store.

Debauched Love

I was checking out a copy of A Million Little Pieces by James Frey at the public library and when I got home this note fell out of the book.

The Pretty Girl

I found this in one of my old purses. My youngest wrote it to me. Apparently she hid it there with high hopes I would find it. It’s been at least a year and half since I used that purse. Sad.

Continued Thursday

I found this in Best Buy. At first I thought it was written by a middle schooler but was later informed it is in fact by a high school student. Interesting… I mainly enjoy the fact that it had to be continued!

Inappropriate Grandma

A co-worker found this in his driveway one Sunday morning. I kept it because it’s so damned funny and disturbing. The simple call of “flaps” got us through several horrendous days.

Granny Crush

At my place of business, we have an enter-to-win ballot box that I clean out once a week. This was written on the back of one of the entry forms. Don’t do it, Granny. He’s just trying to get in your will.

Fat Kid

The first day back at school after being sick, I found this posted in the window of the resource room. It didn’t belong there, so I took it down and almost threw it in the recycle bin. Then I realized it belongs here instead.

Drama

Found on the floor of Lifetime Fitness.

Love Poem

I saw this piece of paper on the street, at the intersection of Bivins & James Streets. It was early Sunday morning and I was walking the dog and picking up trash. I picked it up. The poem is written on the back of a portion of the wine list from some restaurant.
