Books, ah, books. Such curious, interesting things, aren’t they?

And if that was my post in its entirety then that would make for one boring entry in the Beans cannon. Let’s try again.

Books, ah, books. Weird lumps of shit, aren’t they? They are weird. They contain strange stories that come from people’s minds. Sometimes though stranger things can come forth from fiction. Take for example the messages people write in books; a lot of the time it’s a simple message such as, “Happy Birthday Sharon,” or, “Thanking you for your excellent pie, Dennis.” On occasion some people can take it a step too far.

I was browsing the vast and excellent selection of books in a local charity shop close to work when I picked a copy of ‘Wind in the Willows’ by chance. Inside was a message which must have made sense to someone at some point. My own viewpoint, some thirty years later however, left me wondering just who I was and what was going on. It was too good to miss, so here it is:

  • My favourite thing about this is that they had two goes at spelling “green” and still got it wrong. I reckon that most of the time I could beat those odds.

    They also manage to misspell ‘maybe’ and ‘christmas’.

    My favourite bit is the fact that it looks like she’s written, ‘love and hags’.

  • What’s her name? Aanya? Aunya? Aauya?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I think she spelt it wrong because she gave it a second try further down. Her name must be A.xx. Perhaps she was a robot?

  • Axx is a pretty cool name. I might name my first child Axx.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Don’t forget the obligatory full stop in the middle to really confuse people.

  • I’ve only just noticed that this Aunya person also spells “guess” with an x. That’s pretty daring.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I think we could talk about this for weeks and still not fully come to terms with how wrong it actually is.

  • I think you’ll find we already have talked about this for weeks.

    Gibbons. Big hairy gibbons, you’re right!

  • I haven’t talked about it at all until now, can we start again?

  • Sure.
