I’ll find her if it takes all day

Handwritten page of a diary dated April 26, 1974

because it looked empty and it was on the dumpster, I thought maybe someone meant to throw it out. But I don’t think so. There were a few things in there, including a framed picture of a pretty girl and an ugly girl with their arms around each other’s necks and just smiling away like they both didn’t have the dumbest hairdos of their entire lives.

AND a book called Dibs, which I had read myself a few years back, about this mute boy and people thought he was practically brainless, but he turns out to be some kind of genius. Except the bookmark was only a little way through.

Also — almost $30 which I sure coulda used in a big way — except I myself lost my own billfold once and I remember how bad that felt so I really wanted to find the person and make her day and also make sure she finished reading till the end of the book.
