I found this thank you note not long after graduation. I had just graduated, so I feel like some of my friendships could be reflected in this note, too. I just wish I knew more of their story.

Slovenly and Piggish

My friend Eve lives on a private street with four properties off of a main road. The mailboxes are lined up all four on one metal frame. One of those properties is owned by a hoarder. It is a corner property so it’s really visible from the main road. Its a really trashy property. Eve … Continued

Many years ago I came across this note lying on the sidewalk near my house. I’ve carried it with me for years, I’m not exactly why. Inspiration? Cautionary tale? Who knows, but it was only matter of time before the note made it to your site.
