You know how exciting it is, when you go to try on that old winter coat or those fabulous summer shorts and you reach into the pocket and feel a little "sumpin sumpin"?
A paperish kind of wad?
You know...the unmistakable feeling of forgotten money?!
It's like winning the lottery!!
Only...a real small lottery. Like...a couple of bucks lottery. But, STILL! The excitement, the adrenaline surge, the giddiness from finding a couple of bucks?! (What? You mean...you don't get that excited over a couple of dollar bills? Oh...well then...nevermind you.)
It makes my day!
And tonight...my Belle...she got to experience it for the first time!
We were sorting fall/winter/outgrown summer/will still work for summer clothes when I felt something hard in the pocket of her capris. I reached in the pocket...and felt the unmistakable feeling of cold hard cash!
And a wad of it too! I was thinking it must be all ones, but imagine my surprise when I pulled out a wad of cash with a ten on top of it!!
What on earth she was intending to buy the last time she wore those capris is beyond me...and, for the record, is was 14 bucks...but STILL!
14 bucks of cold hard cash to an 8 year old is like striking gold.
Heck! I'd feel like I struck gold if I found 14 bucks in my pocket...and I'm 33!
I'm off to search the pockets of my spring jackets now...I'll let you know what I find.
And, I just had to throw this in for good measure:
There...I feel complete now.
