I found 20 dollars in a hidden fold of my wallety-thing yesterday, just before payday and just when I needed it most.

This isn’t so very strange, because my wallety-thing is an old MAC pouch that used to contain lipgloss, and now contains: my cash, my bank card, my credit card, my healthcare card, 47 tattered bank receipts, various notes to myself and a mysterious piece of white lint.

Still, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. When I found the twenty, I held it up to the people I was sitting with at the sidewalk cafe and said, “Twenty dollars! I feel like I won the lottery!”

Everyone just sort of shook their heads.

  1. Totally comprend-ay.

    Passersby would easily think I won 20million based on the way I acted when I found a twenty in a parking lot.

  2. I opened up a library book once with a $10 bill in it. Judging by the comic strip that was also in the book, I figured it must have been sitting in there waiting for me for about 20 years.

  3. I found a twenty a few weeks ago in a pair of pants I hadn’t worn in a while. Instantly I saw my next few meals dancing in front of me. It’s a beautiful thing.
