I found this postcard nestled between the pages of a book I borrowed from a DC Public Library. I have since returned the book but I use the postcard as a bookmark now. Half of me wants to keep it. The other detective-novel-and-movie-obsessed nerd half wants to track the owner down and return it. I have her address but what if she has moved and never receives it? Then we both lose out! According to Linked In, she is currently a Legal Services Intern at International Institute of Boston. But who knows how often she updates her page and if she is even there anymore? How long do interns last anyway? Doesn’t matter. Amrith Fernandes Prabhu is not currently open to receiving Introductions or InMail™.
I could call her since she left her phone number for her buddy Amanda but that was in 2007 and if she’s in Boston now, this 202 number won’t work. Oh, she did such good work while she was here! She is the 2005 recipient of the Alice Paul Award, honoring students who have demonstrated outstanding service to women in the AU community. A rugby player? A New Hampshire Delegate Candidate? You are one busy lady! Maybe you don’t even miss this postcard. Maybe you don’t even remember getting it from your beloved and so proud Ammo.
Well, if you ever change your mind, you know where to reach me. In the meantime, the postcard will take up residence in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian: A Novel and then Dead in the Family: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel and, possibly later, The Black Cat: A Richard Jury Mystery. I hope you don’t mind.
WAIT! I blame the allergy medication but now that I think about it, the address in the upper left corner is the sender (thus Ammo = Amrith) which means I need to do some searching on Vaani Gupta! Stay tuned.
