I found this post-it note on the sidewalk next to the playground at the Aidan Montessori School in Woodley Park, Washington, DC. I imagine the note is related to a classroom activity where letters are converted to piano notes, and maybe a student passed this note to a friend when they realized that their name is pretty when translated into piano notes.

Whoever created this obviously put a lot of time and emotion into creating just the right expression of love. Yet, there it was, on the street, neglected and forgotten. Love. So deep. So fleeting.

I found this Post-It Monday morning, bright and early, in my desk drawer, when I came into work and was arranging my things for the week. It was on a Post-It pad, as if the brainstormer calmly scribbled it and just hid it there upon discovery. (Or so I like to imagine)
I’ve worked as an assistant in this home office for 3 years, but though I’ve found some odd things in my time — unexplainable tchotchkes, questionable knickknacks, books with titles that make me raise an eyebrow (It’s kind of an eccentric place) — I’ve never found something like this in my space.

This note was folded in neat little quarters, with “To: Eric” written on the outside front and back. Even with the careful labeling, it got lost in a Metro station. She sounds so wistful … hope she and Eric had time for more than just texts!

Recently, at the bar where I work, a girl locked herself in the bathroom and promptly passed out. After ultimately breaking the door down, the girl’s friends took her home; it was not until we closed that we found this note. Apparently the girl’s friend thought she just needed the promise of Bananas Foster to wake her up.

Found it on a shelf near the mailboxes in my apartment building. For what it’s worth, the next morning I definitely heard a loud radio blaring from an apartment down the hall.

Found this in a collection of odds and ends on the sidewalk where a woman had apparently either died or been evicted from her home.

Found on the sidewalk in front of the Capital Grille, about a block from the Library of Congress, two blocks from the US Capitol. Is that the Capitol Building on the left there, or a spaceship? And are those airplanes fleeing? Attacking? Or just ignoring? And what is that bad bunny hiding behind? Not to mention holding in his bad bunny paws?
