Here in Czech, there are these things called "pamatnik", that are popular with littler kids in elementary school. They are books (kinda like notebooks) with empty pages, which then are filled with drawings from people you know, friends, family, teachers etc.
Well, when I was in third and fourth grade, I had a pamatnik. A pretty cool one, I might add, and it was FILLED with drawings from other people that I was very proud of. I had everyone draw in it for me, and that pamatnik was my treasure. But, one day I gave it to a certain person to draw in it...and I never saw it again...until now.
I had given it to Becca M. three years ago to draw something in it. She then forgot about it and put it in a pile of books and other things. Meanwhile, I had no idea where it had gone, 'cause I couldn't remember who I had given it to. For those three years, I looked for it, but never found it and then just forgot about it as well.
Then, on my birthday, I went to see Becca, and we had an "art day". That was the day I was reunited with my pamatnik. She brought it down from her room laughing, about how she had had it for so long and STILL hadn't drawn anything in it. She said she found it while cleaning out her room. I got to look at all the old pictures my friends drew, it was a special moment for me. :)
So, after three years of being seperated from my pamatnik, I now have it back, WITH a drawing for Becca, and I will treasure it for long times to come. And that's the end of the story of "The Lost Pamatnik!"
