The humor behind this find is the fact that it was located between the pages of a steamy book assigned for my love and eroticism class. This course apparently inspired this adventurous couple to do a little more then learn.
The other side of the page has the words “Long Lost Love” written inside of a broken heart. I think this is self-explanatory– this person is completely in love with Shakoria but his rival for her affections, David, is currently in her favor. My favorite line is “…you are thing that I want into a girl.” Oh, to be young and in love.
Three years ago, I found two copies of this underneath a U-Haul seat while I was moving out of my freshmen dorms. It came with another sheet of paper with a digital image of a pixelated grim reaper that I can’t seem to find now. The U-Haul got towed that night (unrightfully, but thats another story) and I spent hours trying to find the tow yard on foot. I finally found the yard and was in the depths of despair after paying the City of Chicago a $300 fine when I found this. I just read it over and over and over and it made my night.
FOUND by Jason Saiter in a high school classroom podium
I found this on my podium with a bunch of other notes on the same-sized paper. The custodian likely put it there, but I’m not sure. I teach in a high school and thought this was pretty interesting compared to other things I’ve found. Tried to discreetly find the owner with no luck.
This note was found in my friend Cory’s high school locker after, presumably, having been dropped in there by mistake. We found it on 12/3/2000 and I kept it in my wallet for the next 10 years. On the heavy side, I was an American high school student and this was a year and a half after the Columbine shootings. The sort of 1950′s sock-hop innocence of this note helped me remember that the entire world wasn’t always going to hell all the time. It kinda gave me perspective.
I love the way she emphasizes the words “Sometimes”, “care about”, and “one” with an underline in the second paragraph. I also love the question, “Do you hold hands?” Some of her turns of phrase are pure genius.
Also, caught your show in Bloomington last night. Thanks for coming to our little town! the show was great, and I hope you had a good time!
