Animal Attributes

I found this on a table in my work’s cafeteria. It was written on a napkin, and I thought that it was just hilarious, especially because it is all about someone named Lance, and that is my name, too.

Special Dad

I don’t remember where I found this, most likely at a garage sale or thrift store.

Hey, a Fish

It seems like after Alex discovered emoticons and sent mementos to his pals he was afraid Mimi would whack him over the head with one of her lunch boxes for not giving her one, too. So he did, with fish, and a rose.

I found this written in an old gift book at a thrift store. The book was titled “… And Spring Shall Come.” While I had no interest in the book itself, I had to have it for the inscription, which says so much, yet begs so many questions.

Chipmunk Cheeks and Gargling Nails

I am a music teacher. I was working backstage at an all-state music concert for high school students. Someone turned this over to me and I wasn’t able to find the owner.

Good News in Newark

Found in a puddle outside my workplace near a day-care center. Glad to know some “Good News” is going down in the city!
