Have You Ever Found Money You Didn’t Know You Had?
Twice in my lifetime, now, I have found money I didn't know I had. Both times it was a huge and pleasant surprise...although I can't help but wonder HOW it happened in one of the instances.
Let's start with 1987 when I was in college.
I had a function within the broadcasting department and decided to wear my blazer which had been hanging in my dorm closet wondering what it was doing there since I hardly ever used it.
When I put it on, I reached inside an inner coat pocket and found a $20 bill.
To a college kid, that was like being given the key to Fort Knox.
I consulted an inflation calculator and learned that that would be worth $44.88 today.
Well, it's happened again.
And while I haven't worn the pants I'm currently wearing in a long time, I can't believe this money has been in there the whole time.
In fact, I don't believe that.
I found some money last night and just shoved it into my pocket without thinking about it.
Today I discovered it was a LOT more than I would have expected.
And since my conscience is getting to me, if you can tell me how much it is and where I found it, please claim it by tomorrow at 5PM.
Otherwise, I'll donate it.
Life's full of weirdness, isn't it?
