...and then I found $20.

No, really! Yesterday as I was walking into the post office I found a $20 bill lying in plain view on the sidewalk. I walked past it at first. "Surely it's not a real $20 bill," I thought. "Someone else would have picked it up by now." I continued in and retrieved the mail from our box. When I came out, the bill was still there. So I picked it up and took it inside to Mr. Johnny, one of the employees. He was awarded a purple heart, so I think he is trustworthy. And I realized that I didn't even need to keep it; just finding $20 is exciting. The next time I find myself in a lagging conversation, I will tack this story onto the end of it, and all will be well.

I think something like this happened on Leave it to Beaver or Adventures in Odyssey one time. I think Beaver kept the money and blew it on booze and cheap cigars. Frankly, I'm surprised you didn't do the same.

It's odd that you have a better first response to this situation than a seminary student, namely myself, would have. Perhaps this should be cause for concern? Nah.

Trey, I listened to a lot of Adventures in Odyssey growing up. The minute I saw that money, I knew Mr. Whitaker would tell me to turn it in.
