A Cautionary Tale about Notes

Back when Jamie and I were in school, we used to write notes to each other to fight away boredom in some of our most boring classes. Therefore, we both have a prolific catalog of lists, drawings, and strange musings. The problem with writing notes is when you are lazy about it. In college I turned into my English TA a note that I had written to Jamie. We were supposed to turn in a comparison between Harriet Beecher Stowe and Frederick Douglass and instead I handed in the hilarious one-act play starring Sir Walter Raleigh and Francis Drake as the Odd Couple (I do not remember where this idea came from nor do I wish to speculate). I remember arriving at my next class, which Jamie was in, and going to hand her the play/note. “Wow that’s weird…I only have this thing on Stowe and Douglass….” I said and then I realized with horror what I had done. Fortunately the TA thought it was funny or maybe he just pitied me for being so crazy of a person to write such libel about two manly privateers.
