The Problem with Money!
I have not joined in the amazing Saturday Centus for many, many weeks but this time I just had to. The lovely Jenny Matlock is celebrating her 100TH! She really knows how to throw a party too. The prompt this week is her first and my goodness it was a long one. It is in blue and as usual we can only add 100 words to it!
My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred pound notes nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
I looked around to see if the owner was nearby. No. I checked to see if I was alone with my find. Yes. Quickly I went through that shopping list that I had no idea I kept in the dark recess of my mind – house, car, jewels. It would seem that I have always had the potential for spending BIG.
The bundle would not buy me those things but it would cover a good meal or an evening at the theatre with that special person. Ah, there’s the rub as Shakespeare said – he has long gone. So, best leave it there.
Do pop over to Jenny’s and see how the others have celebrated!
