This has been the year of graffiti.  I have found it on the tables, chair legs and books. Some of the worse was the black felt marker graffiti on the oak (yes, solid oak) arms of the library couches.  Earlier this week a very sweet substitute teacher brought me a textbook with tagging in it.  The substitute sheepishly and quickly flipped the cover open to show what had been drawn in what we used to call “black magic marker.” “Oh great, nice touch,” I said.  A student had added two crude drawings of penises on the inside covers. How old are these kids again?  Eight?

While I was shelving books, since the students are gone, I found this.

It was appropriate since the book next to it is Alice in Wonderland.  Too bad this “graffiti artist” wasn’t more gifted.  They should have drawn a caterpillar sitting on a mushroom, smoking.
