My Dad has this really old metal lock box that he keeps in the bottom drawer of his desk. I think the company that made that box no longer exists and hasn’t been in business for a long time. He never said anything about the box. I only knew that it existed because one day during my childhood, I peeked in the drawer when he was at work.
I chickened out and left the box alone. For years I thought about taking the box out and looking inside. My mind raced with the possibilities. Perhaps it was filled with rare coins or comic books from my father’s youth. Maybe the box housed love letters he had written when he was overseas during Vietnam. I couldn’t bring myself to look.
Finally, one day, at the age of 20, I decided to look. It was like a scene from a spy movie, I put on gloves and memorized the exact orientation of the box within the drawer. Inside, I found an old manila envelope with a single sheet of paper that read, “Made You Look.”
