Well, if you write us something like this, we may just have to post it.
I don’t want to turn you into a huge lost and found forum, but I’ve lost my camera and am ever so desperate about getting it back. If you would post some or all of what’s below, I can’t tell you how grateful I would be. I’m kind of freaking out and this is the only resource I have left. Anyway:
After my Reproduction in the 21st Century midterm in Science Center 128 yesterday, my black Cannon Powershot sat forgotten underneath my desk. The test ended at 2:30. I realized my bad camera-parenting skills at about 3 and hurried back, but alas she was gone. I’ve already managed to pester my class about her fate, and learned that she was last seen on a table at the front of the room. She has since disappeared. I’m starting to get nervous about her, so now my grief has forced me to turn to the greater Wesleyan community. My Cannon is essentially my fifth limb and I’m at a serious loss without it.
My camera is (once again) a black Cannon Powershot who answers to the name of “Laurenellen McCann’s” and contains all my pictures from fall break, a surprise I’ve been working on for my parents (which includes my name on it), and a random series of chess pieces. I’m not sure anyone else would really be interested in these pictures, so I was hoping that whomever removed my camera from the classroom would help me out in getting her home. I’ve checked both the PSafe and the Usdan lost and found, combed the room, and have found nothing. If you found my camera or know where she went, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a reward. Food if you want it and a personalized winter scarf if you don’t. Super-eternal gratitude either way.
Alternatively, please just turn it into PSafe or Usdan. Thank so you much for your help!
