Pocket Surprises

Not really drawings but they are pieces of paper with pen on them and I think they're pretty cool and well, it's my blog so I'll do as I please. They've been in the back pocket of my jeans for quite some time now and they've been through a rinse/wash at least once so they've really started coming apart. The above scan is how they looked when I pulled them out of my pocket.

This is after I opened up and flattened the papers. One is a envelope from a letter that my Dad sent to me. The other is a scrap of paper with a draft of a letter I wrote awhile back. The triangle closure section of the envelope actually became dislodged through gradual wear. Very strange

Here is the other side of the papers. The backside of the envelop was a shopping list for ingredients from last Thanksgiving. On both papers you can see how the ink bled through to the folded over side when the pants were washed.

I am glad your "pocket surprises" were SFW.

Also impressed that you not only wrote a letter recently enough to still have a draft of it in your pocket, but that you wrote at least one draft of it beforehand.

Yikes! I didn't really pay attention to the title on this one as I put it up last night. Indeed SFW.
