As per Maggie's request...

Here are some funny things that my mom found. I kept these ones from going back into the box because I feel as though I can find a special place in my room for them. They just remind me of an easier, more carefree time in my life, and I think we all need those reminders sometimes.

I have no idea who this first one came from. I don't even know what grade it was from. It just makes me laugh.

A card from a friend.

Here's a close-up of the front. If you can't read it, it says "From Danny to Norah." The speech bubble says "your my friend." I was good friends with a boy named Danny in second grade. He's Maggie's little brother! Can you believe it? Friend with one sibling and then years later, friends with the other.

Here's the inside of the card. If you can't tell, it says "hey Norah I just wanted to give you this card. I have no idea why I'm giving this to you I guess because were friends." I think what makes this so funny is the message as well as the funny little grammatical errors. Second grade... what a great year.

Skip forward to fifth grade (I think?). It was my turn to be "Champion of the Week." I read through all the papers like this I received, but wanted to share this one because now I'm good friends with the girl who wrote it. Back then, we were just classmates, if I remember correctly.

If you can't read it, it says "I'm glad your in my class. You have a nice family. I like your bear. You have cool tropheys." I guess along with being "Champion of the Week," we had to do a little show-and-tell. From what all the other papers said, I assume I brought in Orson (my teddy bear), my karate trophies, and some pictures of my family. So thanks, Maggie, for the kind note! lol.

Hope you enjoyed my little blast from the past as much as I did!
