South DaCola lost & found

When I got home at lunch today this brown bag lunch was leaning against a tree in my front yard. Not sure if it was for me, but whoever it was for sure is hungry.


Please email me if this is your lunch, and I will get it back to you;


2 Rice crispy bars

2 bags of Cheetos (one Jalepeno)

2 Nilla Cake snack packs

2 Ham and Cheese sandwiches

2 packets of mustard

1 Motts applesauce snack size (sorry, I ate that already)

1 white plastic spoon

Yes, it was for you.

I like to play a little game I learned in College called: “Guess which item is laced with LSD?”

Have a nice trip!

I call dibs on those mustard packets.

I’m thinking some kids in my neighborhood got the food at the YWCA summer lunch program, and either got tired of carrying it or started playing with a stray cat and forgot about it.

And you ate their applesauce. For shame.

I looooovvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee Applesauce.

I found a silo of unopened CAMO Malt liquor on the bike trail yesterday, but it was pretty warm, so I left it.

I once found two 4-packs of assorded wine coolers and some purple passion – all un-opened under a bridge in Chamberlain, SD.

I didn’t even consider trying to drink any of it considering it was about 90 degrees that day and I had no idea how long it had been there.

When will people learn to keep their beverages in a fishnet submerged in water? It’s what all the cool kids do.

Ron White (comedian) will take the Cheetos. Don’t hang around, he eats them naked in an easy chair.
I found a bag of unmarked 20’s in a crack neighborhood. No reward was advertised so I’ve used it to leave lunch sacks in the yards of starving graphic artists.

Thanks, but for future reference, I hate Nilla Cakes.

This kind of made me laugh, it reminded me of a time a few years ago, when I was riding a paratransit bus and we picked up a special needs student who had evidently fixed her own lunch. She no sooner got sat and buckled in when she opend her lunch bag and proceeded to show me one by one, what was in it and as she held up each item she would say “food.” She had a couple cans of pop and a couple boxes of juice type stuff. Alsl Little Debbie stuff, a couple candy bars, and I can’t remember what all else, but it was all pure junk. Still it was cute, the way she told me each item was food, and she seemed proud of it.

Kind of sounds like she watched The Chocolate Factory one too many times.
