The Strange Case of the Missing Read Poster Strikes Back
Just a regular old day in the library . . .
Wait a second.
I’m having flashbacks . . .
HOW COULD IT FALL DOWN THE CRACK AGAIN?!?!
THE CRACK IS SO SMALL!
Stay calm, Travis, stay calm. Look on the floor . . .
IT’S NOT ON THE FLOOR!
Check the floor again . . .
STILL NOT THERE!
Wait. What’s that on top of the shelf over there?
Oh. Heh. There it is. The castodian must have picked it up off the floor and set it on the shelf.
Does it still have our fool-proof anti-crack-falling-into safeguard?
Yes. folded up piece of paper still in place.
Ahhh. Much better. It really ties the room together.
