Dear Lola,

My family, friends and coworkers have all made comments about my love of sticky notes. I ask for them for birthdays and Christmas gifts, and even put them on my wedding gift registry. They say that I have too many, but I use them all! Please settle this issue once and for all so I can continue with my beloved collection of handy notes with a sticky backing. How many sticky notes is too many sticky notes?


Stuck On A Problem

Dear Stuck On A Problem,

I would like to go on the record that I am an avid lover of sticky notes and have amassed quite a collection of them over my 11 years of life. Not only are they efficient for reminding myself of the need to check my toy box for any recent thefts, they are also perfect for leaving in obvious places my humans are sure not to miss.

A daily sticky note on their pillow ensures my humans never forget to feed me.

Seeing as how sticky notes are tiny and rather easy to store, I cannot imagine how one could label your collecting them as problematic. I think you just need to show your friends and family how amazing your collection is. Be sure to leave sticky notes in all their homes whenever you visit.

A sticky note left in their bathroom should make them feel treasured when next they poop.

That being said, there is always the potential that one could possibly get into trouble if they are not utilizing sticky notes in a timely manner. You need to be sure to use at least 25% of the volume that you are taking in. This should allow you to collect for about 100 years before reaching a critical state inside of your home.

If the floor joists start sagging, you have gone too far.

If that occurs, use your sticky notes to build a life-size recreation of Buckingham Palace. Not only will you be able to show off your sticky note hoard, but you’ll also earn some quick cash by charging admission.
