FOUND by Paul Markowicz in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York
I found this note today (Memorial Day, 2012) on the street walking back from a picnic in Prospect Park. It was laying face-up by itself and since I noticed it was a sizable handwritten note, my curiosity was piqued. When I started reading it, I figured it was a breakup note or an angry letter from a parent, but by the end assumed it was a cash gift to a once-spoiled child. The true story is still unclear.

I’m not sure exactly what “VOID” means in this case. Does it mean that they have already been used? Or does it mean that they are no longer valid? Maybe they had an expiration date or something. Or he made her mad at some point and she scribbled “VOID” on it out of spite. “Fer cripes sake woman, shut yer trap! I’m trying to play Halo!” Poor guy.
