The other side of the page has the words “Long Lost Love” written inside of a broken heart. I think this is self-explanatory– this person is completely in love with Shakoria but his rival for her affections, David, is currently in her favor. My favorite line is “…you are thing that I want into a girl.” Oh, to be young and in love.
I found this waiting for a doctor’s appointment, neatly folded on a chair. My main question is whether this was returned to the note-writer this way, or if the recipient circled their response but never returned it.
I found this in the boot of my car after I bought it. It’s a Japanese car not sold in many places outside of Japan, privately imported to Australia around 8-10 years ago. When I cleaned out all the carpet inside the boot I found a squished packet of photos that I gather were developed in 1998 at Fujifilm in Japan.
FOUND by Jason Saiter in a high school classroom podium
I found this on my podium with a bunch of other notes on the same-sized paper. The custodian likely put it there, but I’m not sure. I teach in a high school and thought this was pretty interesting compared to other things I’ve found. Tried to discreetly find the owner with no luck.
I found this small, folded note lying on the floor under a table in the student center ballroom at the Rogers State University Student Center. Is musical aptitude really a banishable offense? Was it just the last in a long list of grievances? Who did the banishing? The ex-girlfriend? Her parents? I hope you still continued to play while in exile, Banished Guy.
I found this letter while straightening up the waiting room at a children’s facility. I look at all of the patients we saw that day to see if I could find their name so we could return the letter, but we couldn’t find it. It was too cute to throw away!
My friend and I were exiting our school cafeteria when we saw a note flutter to the ground. We didn’t get a chance to see who dropped it but whoever it was, she was chatting with the principle. My friend scooped it up and unfolded it quickly. we read it and started dying laughing and then argued over who could keep it.
This note was found in my friend Cory’s high school locker after, presumably, having been dropped in there by mistake. We found it on 12/3/2000 and I kept it in my wallet for the next 10 years. On the heavy side, I was an American high school student and this was a year and a half after the Columbine shootings. The sort of 1950′s sock-hop innocence of this note helped me remember that the entire world wasn’t always going to hell all the time. It kinda gave me perspective.
I love the way she emphasizes the words “Sometimes”, “care about”, and “one” with an underline in the second paragraph. I also love the question, “Do you hold hands?” Some of her turns of phrase are pure genius.
Also, caught your show in Bloomington last night. Thanks for coming to our little town! the show was great, and I hope you had a good time!
