I found something unexpected at the bottom of my garden one beautiful Saturday morning. I was weeding my rosebushes when I spotted a hole just out of view. I got closer and reached into the hole. To my surprise, I found a bottle with a note inside. I open the bottle with care, and this is what they wrote inside.

If you’ve found me, I must have gone. If you want to find my treasure, follow these steps.

The only thing left was to follow the make-shift treasure map to find the treasure.

Ten steps West. Twenty-five steps south. Five steps east. And finally, fifteen steps north. Look down, and the prize will be yours.

I look around, and all I see is a tree, so I started digging, and to my surprise, I found another bottle with a note.

Congratulations, you’ve found your prize.

Inside is a copy of yesterday’s paper with a reminder that just because I’m losing my mind doesn’t mean I can’t have fun.
