A Year Book
from the Early 2000s
The Back Story
As you may well know, I get most of my print books free... from library free stacks, mostly. And while browsing through such a stack, I found this yearbook, which would normally be highly uninteresting. But this one had all sorts of notes and signatures and such in it, which made it highly... um, personalized and insightful.
Thoughts Going In
As I just said, I found a Year Book. No, I am not going to return it. I figure whoever donated it, knew what they were donating. And let's face it, I disposed of mine (probably improperly) a long time ago, as well.
Mainly Concerning The Inscriptions
- Hmm, I wonder if that email address was ever used?
- Or how it could be abused!
- Are we to believe his sister was a bit of a slut?
- Yeah, I had to look it up.
- He has a girlfriend.
- And a lot of girl friends.
- Glitter pen.
- More email addresses.
- Lots of sex-wishes from the guys.
- Apparently (well, word is, anyway) his girlfriend just broke up with him.
- Or maybe, that was someone else's handwriting.
- I mean, it doesn't look like her handwriting.
- She's Hot!
- Hey, just reading the comments, here.
- Who am I to second guess the written word.
- Her classmates would disagree.
- Apparently, one of the teachers is a pediaphile.
- Should I contact the authorities?
- Everybody likes the janitor.
- A lot of clowns in the front office.
- I could see doing a fake yearbook project.
- Lots of dislikes.
- So many pages of nobody cares.
- Well, I don't remember that part.
- Shall we assume he's on the basketball team.
- Nah, nobody signed that page.
- They put a baby picture of their daughter in the classified section.
- Just gonna correct that for you.
- Um, the full-page dedication splashes are a bit much.
- Fifty pages of...
- The dogs we love.
- I don't need a history lesson.
- Um, turns out the rumors regarding a breakup were all false.
- So, yeah.
- I'm back in the fun place.
- It's a lot of weight for six pages of inscriptions, though.
Sure, I will nab the next Year Book I find. But I can see how reading the inscriptions could get tedious real fast. Nobody knows what to say. And as such, nobody says anything. On the other hand, if he didn't write those email addresses down, I'm thinking he's going to regret that decision a few years down the line.
