I’ve been working at one of the campus libraries this summer, and a senior (who presumably went home after graduation) left this on her study carrel. I’ve been watering it occasionally, and if it doesn’t disappear before we start cleaning off last year’s carrels, I’m going to adopt it. (I feel like it wouldn’t be happy dumped in the Lost & Found box.)
Something had seemed off about the flower (mainly that I couldn’t find any pictures to match it online), but I hadn’t really paid attention. Then, this evening, my hand brushed against it, and it felt… papery?
Then I realized that the flower hadn’t changed in the three weeks since I first saw it.
Then I looked closely at it, and realized it was glued on.
As we say on tumblr: adjkhtdcchgjjhesszfdxlnooooo why would you doooo thaaat?
