I Know My Calculus

I work at the Indiana University library, and this is one of many treasures I’ve found in the stacks. I think some graduate students who work in the carrels upstairs had a bit of a nerdy love connection going on.

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.


This was one of two crumpled sheets of paper I found in an otherwise empty trashcan at the back of an old hardware store. The other sheet was covered with hearts and had “I love my dog. I love you God.”

This love note was left on the bar at a place I used to bartend. I should note it was empty inside.

Good Luck

I found this in the local park. Sounds very, VERY bitter!
