Post-It Wallpaper

Grad school will make you do wacky things. Like cover a dorm room wall-to-wall in hundreds of Post-It’s just for the fun of it.

Prison Grad school time is slow time. So ya do what ya can to keep going. Some fellas collect stamps. Others build matchstick houses. Andy Zach built a library mostly paid video games and ate good food. Now he needed a new project. Tommy Decorating was it. It was the same reason he spent years shaping and polishing those rocks doodling ideas in his notebooks. The same reason he hung his fantasy girlies on the wall …no comment. In prison grad school, a man’ll do most anything to keep his mind occupied. By 1966 2018, right about the time Tommy he was getting ready to take his exams, it was Lovely Raquel putting Post-It’s all over the walls.”
