Sara move to another country and lost contact with all her old friends. She misses them a lot. she also tried to contact them but can never get in touch. In her mind shes mad and relized that she deosnt even care that much for them anyways cuz she made new friends out of cardboard and construction paper. She stood them up in various places in her house and pretended they were her BFFs. She made large scrapbooks of their "adventures." She would often talk to and cry on the shoulders of her cardboard friends, and she would tell them how her papier mache boyfriend didn't show any emotional response to her tender tears. But her friend's cardboard shoulders gave her paper cuts in her eyes that was so painful she visited her posterboard doctor who was unmoved by her attempts to seduce him. Discouraged, she went back to friend Flat Stanley and complained about how she didn't feel she fit into this world where everybody was flat except for her. Flat Stanley thought her hyperbolic curves were just his geodesic & led her by shortest path to a soft horizontal plane to plot her inner spaces. He said, "Your hidden dimensions are proof of a higher power." She was flattened by the flattery and swooned. Flat Stanley roguishly lay her down on the bed but accidentally gave her the mother of all paper cuts. Right on her you-know-what. "Oh Flat Stanley, I love you, but this relationship will never work." Stan cried. He had finally found his soul mate after all these years but now his bubbliness was flat as well. Flat Stanley's life became a downward spiral of coke lines and racy Euclidean magazines. Nothing could ever take his mind off the plane.

Oh, baby. You’re so hot. I just want to plot your inner spaces.

Slim, you dirty dog!  ;)

Your eyes have a perfect wavelength of 563.4 nm.

That dress would look even better accelerating towards my bedroom floor at 9.8 m/s2.

Like the ideal vacuum, you’re the only thing in my universe.

hahaha!  49erFaithful, you should write a guide for picking up really smart chicks you can have interesting conversations with.

Oh, I’m just a shameless googler, copier, paster. If that’s the key to picking up chicks of any type then I’ve been hanging out in the wrong bars!

That wouldn’t be the Bar “Magnet” would it? Opposite’s attract. Though most patrons swing both ways.

@BuddyBoy: congrats on finishing off this gem of a story with the Featured Fold!

Thanks, Slim! And I agree with your assessment of ‘gem’; several of the folds in this story were worthy of Featured Fold status. We definitely grasped the state of the flat mind on this one.

Great coproduction everyone! And congrats to Buddyboy. Though I must admit I also really liked Slim’s geodesical contribution ;)

Leave it to Chaz to turn a so-so fold into an epic story!!

@muriƫlschipper: Thanks for the compliment - I liked it too. But I much prefer being part of a really good story as opposed to having the one shining fold in a lackluster story. The best place for a good fold is among the fold of other good folds. ;-)

... and now it has a postlude
or is that a qualude?

BTW, I’m sure most people have met a real Flat Stanley, but just in case anyone didn’t know, he’s a real thing, even beyond the reality of the FS Universe.

The plane that could lead to her old life, where paper friends did not exist, she thought many times about making a paper airplane to return to the volumetric life…
