So this guy is staying at a hotel and the maid threw away his Field Notes memo book while tidying up his room. Aw man, I’d be beside myself. He kept his cool, scanned the room and decided to fight back.
He took matters into his own hands and went and retrieved them. You can see the scene illustrated right here.
Field Notes are good for recording precious memories like this one, as well as harrowing accounts of bravery, daring escapes, good nights out, bad nights out, gambling earnings, lists, short stories, treasure maps, mathematic equations and the occasional dumpster rescue that you just won’t yourself forget. This is why we say, “I’m not writing it down to remember it later. I’m writing it down to remember it now.”
Good work, Casual Brooks.
