FOUND by Sara in Albany Park, Chicago, Illinois
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.
FOUND by Liz in Detroit, Michigan
A typewritten, fill-in-the-blank enigma. Who wrote it? What for? Why a big church wedding? What does the last sentence mean?? How long has it been since you’ve thought of the word “daffy?”
FOUND by Lauren L. underneath a U-Haul seat
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.
