Coming to Town? Evidently He’s Already Here.

An old man with a full white beard wearing a Santa hat just walked up to the help desk. He was looking for a pair of expensive gloves that he had left in a room on a different floor a month ago. After we searched our lost and found and came up with nothing, and I’d given him the number for the maintenance department, he proceeded to explain to me the history of that pair of gloves as well as the identical pair that he was presently holding. This story involved Spain and a small town outside of Iowa City, his wife, the cost of the gloves, their lining, and the department store Carson Prairie-Scott.

Either someone lost their Grandpa, or Santa Claus is looking for Christmas presents on the cheap in University lost and found boxes.
