Residents of a town in central Norway are eager to learn what’s inside a mysterious package sealed since 1912.

The nearly seven-pound package was left behind by Sel’s former mayor Johan Nygaard with the disclaimer that the parcel “be opened in 2012,” the Local reports. The town plans to open the sealed and bound package on Friday.

It will probably be very disappointing.

I say it’s a repair docket for a pair of leather shoes. And they’ll be ready the Tuesday after the box is opened.

Package seems to contain a lot of envelopes with correspondence. Notes on a commitee involving a memorial.
Postcards from all over the place(s).
That´s about it.

And people were expecting something more?  This was from 100 years ago.  Totally different mindset about such stuff today.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
