Happy Thanksgiving

I found this note on day in my classroom after the kids left. I was initially sad to hear that somebody had a rough morning and then i realized that some of the kids hadn’t been on task the entire time during the period dedicated to silent sustained reading.

Dear School

Found in my elementary school’s computer lab.

For Hookin Shit Up

I found this note out in the country next to a huge water tank. It was written on the back of a business flyer that discussed floral arrangements for children’s parties.

Not Quite Divorced Yet

Found this interesting note in a parking lot outside of an Indian restaurant. Was it discarded with no follow-up? Or, had Jill and Karen gotten together that very evening at the Indian restaurant? What not-quite-divorced-yet plans might have been set between these two?

Unrequited Love

I found this on the sidewalk along the beach. I hope Nick knows what he’s asking for.

Move to Canada

Picking up trash along the side of the road, found this against a chain-link fence.

Feal the Need

I found this in the laundry room of my apartment complex. Apparently someone felt passionate about not having their clothes placed on a “dirty-ass washer.” I like that whoever did the horrible deed posted an anonymous reply below.

A Day in the Life of Ryan

I found this Post-It over ten years ago in front of my daughter’s grade school. It’s like a note home from Flannery O’Connor. I’ve thought about Ryan a lot over the years. I hope he’s ok.

The Honesty’s Too Much

Found this at the local credit union on the table where you fill out your deposit slips. The best part? At the moment I found it, the bank’s Muzak started playing “Sometimes When We Touch”! How appropriate.

Don’t Get Mad

I found this on the floor in one of my classes. Something made me pick it up and when I read it, I laughed at its cautious yet blunt nature, but kind of pitied the kid who wrote it. All in all, it’s pretty cute.
