FOUND by Devinclk in the east side of Toronto, Ontario
This note was on the ground this morning near my work. The author (DeseNuts) must have written it last night as it wasn’t there yesterday. Plus, the tape on the top is sticky side up, meaning it was probably placed on a widow or sliding glass door. I guess it was an uncomfortable bus ride.
I purchased a bag of blank journals from a local thrift store. There was a little notebook tucked inside with a cute little elephant watermark on the pages. I flipped throught it and found this note about halfway through. I hope this father and daughter were able to work it out.
I work in a bookstore (BMV) that buys secondhand books, dvds, comics, etc; hundreds if not a thousand a week, and we often come across odd and/or personal items inside the books or boxes. Usually photos, but sometimes home movies, money, postcards, letters, bills, even identification from time to time. Obviously if we discover them in time we give them back to the seller (unless we feel it would be just too embarrassing; don’t use candid photos as bookmarks folks!). For some reason I’d never thought of submitting any of our finds to your magazine until this page from some ballerina’s diet came along. All I can say is I feel sorry for these girls and boys, despite the fact that they, like Hobbits, get a second breakfast. As if the shoes weren’t bad enough.

This tiny post-it note caught my eye as a flash of yellow amidst the bright green grass. I was struck by how neat the handwriting was– almost looks like a font! I am ever curious what the chicken’s motivation would be to commit a heinous act and to which book they were referring.
