Do Not Open…

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    Oooooh, that was good!! Well done.

    As for the real “Do not open”, ugh! I didn’t get halfway through your post before I was mentally telling you to look lol. (I hate surprises, drives me nuts.)

      Then you have an idea of what I’m going through. Like I said in the post, I did feel it up (snicker). I have no idea what it is other than a folded piece of paper. The fun part, though, is watching every night as the culprit who put it there comes in and tells me not to open it. I shrug and say “so”. Probably driving him more crazy than me since I’m not touching it at all or acting interested in it.
