Where’s Fiona Bruce when you need her?

Textbooks are due today. Sure, there are two weeks left in school, but so what? These things are so old. I mean, I have been here for some time now, and I’m sure these things predate me quite a bit. The dang things are so old that they predict a fruitful career for J.D. Salinger.

The fact that these tools for learning may be past their prime, plus the fact that they’ve only been open by students to hide a note or drugs makes them ideal for a very special episode of the Antique Road Show:

“If you notice, the pages are just as crisp as the day it was printed. Quite lovely.”

“At first this seems like a lovely gem, but if you take a closer look the spine is a bit worn. It’s not too much, so the wear probably didn’t come from reading. Most likely this book was worn as a hat to get a laugh.”

“With a closer look you can see a student wrote a note on a piece of paper on top of the cover here. You can see that the pen left an indention. It says Wh-at-a-skan, no, What a skank! Truly a one of a kind”

Now that I think about it, it’s probably a good thing to get these things stored away—before they lose their value.
