For Kyle

I found this five in the till at work when I was counting out the money at the end of the day. Of course as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it so I switched it for a five of my own.

Suck Waste of Cash

Me and my son found this artwork taped to a rock by the river near Coolidge Park. Never found anything like this it was very neat and exciting.

A Sure Thing

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.

A Dream Deferred

This was on the back of one of the bills given to me as change this morning. It makes me sad to think of some kid having to use the money they were saving toward their trip to the magic kingdom for other stuff.

A Love Note

A group of friends and I were on our way to a “Jungle Fever” themed dance when we decided to ditch the dance for some Mexican food. As we were walking to the restaurant I came across this piece of paper on the floor. I’ve kept it in my dorm since.

Omitooth

My parents just bought a gas stove after several years of living with an inferior electric model. During the stove swapping, they discovered some inevitable detritus under the old stove. Their finds included a few plastic toys, a colony of dust bunnies, and this apology to the tooth fairy.

Dire Emergency

I found this posted on a community bulletin board in Bolinas, a small hippie town north of San Francisco. And, in case you’re wondering, no, I did not go look for Gary behind the building.

Ninja Attack

My friend was in San Francisco and found this on the street.

Top Ten Ways to Get Rich

I found this in a Yucatan Peninsula guidebook that was left in our vacation house in Akumal, Mexico. Apparently the beach atmosphere stimulated the economic savvy of this tourist.
