... Oh, and See If You Can Get Her to Brush the Back of Her Head, Too.


I was rummaging through an old box and found a treasure trove of old notes and cards. Here is one of my favorites: a note my mom pinned to the shirt I had laid out to wear one day in 1981. The thing that makes this funny is that I was in 7th grade at the time. How mortifying! Happy ending: I did not get on the bus (I didn't wear the note, it was just meant as a reminder to me). Sad ending: I got a monster wedgie from Madeline K. on this day.

I've got a few notes from the past that I've kept for far too long. And all the love notes. Why, oh, why?

I never had notes like that. I lived across the street from the school. Directly across the street from the school. A Catholic school. With nuns. And mom was pals with them all.

Ah, such times ...

Excellent. I like the fact that you were intent on getting on that bus, lift from your dad or not!

Wait a minute. You didn't brush the back of your hair?

Hmm.. this could explain a lot. Don't know what. But a lot of it.

Now that I have children, I understand that mortifying children is what parents are for. Along with being a total spaz about everything.

Oh. My. God.

That is priceless. "Little girl?" "Little girl???" Mortifying, indeed.

Wedgies beat melvins any day of the week in my book. Has MadelineK ever recovered from the shiner you gave her in return?

That's okay, my wife sometimes sends me to works with such notes pinned to my chest.

Interesting memories. What a great idea for a post! I'll emulate you some time, I have an old excuse note my mother wrote (and then re-wrote every week) to get me out of doing sport.
