Sink or Swim

I found this note stuffed into a vase at a thrift store.

Quit Smoking Pot

My boyfriend and I were at an open house, and while we were exploring the attic, we found this to-do list taped to the door. We immediately snapped a picture. I can only imagine the trouble this kid has gotten himself into!

Cause She’s Not

I picked up this folded yellow piece of paper on Harvard’s Campus. I unraveled the well considered folds to find this amazing note: short, sweet and to the point. I love how well-punctuated it is.

Free Flushes

Found this on my walk to school. Wonder why the bear is so formally dressed, or what sort of “flushes” he’s offering.

Chef Cool Boy

I found this doodle littering a Boston red line subway train. I only hope that this guy actually exists somewhere.

Can You Believe

I was walking to work on a rainy day and found this, soaking wet and covered in dirt on the side of the road. Obviously this five year old has the best handwriting ever.

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.

Girl

I found this in a library book, drawn on a Post-it note.

A Great Tornado

Found on my way to class at UMass Amherst.

Dotted with Hearts

I found this note on the floor in New Bedford High School– I was walking to class, saw it folded up on the ground, and picked it up. The irony of the dotted-heart i’s and the depressed tone of the note make it very surreal to me.
