hazelnut. in room 229 at approximately 6:20pm on wednesday, october 25, 2006. i picked it up. while engaged in conversation with a classmate, I absently rolled it between my fingers. i dug my thumbnail into its body, inadvertently bisecting the object. but I put it back together and left it on the lefthand corner of the chalkboard at the back of the room. please claim it if you lost it.
