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.
