Three Things Challenge #657

Today’s words: attire – desk – hiding

The woman dressed in casual attire to run errands.

At the bank she chose to use the ATM rather than chance

meeting a friend or acquaintance with her medium length hair

pulled back into a ponytail.

When the ATM machine prompted preference of denomination

of withdrawal currency she chose ‘no preference’.

Much to her surprise along with mostly twenties appeared a

crisp $100 bill.

It looked untouched and she decided to save it for a special

occasion then placed it in an envelope in her rather large tote bag.

Three weeks passed and suddenly she found herself low on cash.

Wait – she remembered the stored-for-later $100 only to turn up

empty-handed after a quick search.

Where could she have placed it for safe keeping?

She searched her usual places of which her desk was a most popular

one.

Fifteen minutes had quickly flown by and she didn’t wish to be late

for an appointment.

She thought perhaps she’d dropped it and well whomever found it

was a little bit richer.

A few days later she took out all the ones, fives, tens and twenties

from her current ATM withdrawal and decided to place them in

order of denominations.

There in her wallet before her eyes was the crisp missing one-hundred

dollar bill.

It had been hiding unseen for near a month.

To herself she wondered how on earth it found its way from the

closed envelope to the inside pouch of her wallet.

A fleeting thought followed by an outburst of laughter.

She still hasn’t spent it; however, she did transfer it to a zippered

storage space.

Now she wonders if it will be there when she decides to look for

it or will it have found another hiding place.

  1. This was fun to read – don’t know if it’s a true story that happened, but glad the money was found in the end. I know I’ve stashed a few dollars away, then forget about it only to find it much later. Big smile when I do find it. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, this is a true story πŸ™‚ and I am the woman. To best of my knowledge that $100 is still in zippered pouch (although I haven’t checked the past few days LOL). It was nice to read your feedback ‘a fun read’ – glad you enjoyed the mini-story. A bonus here is I remained calm throughout the ordeal (amazing).
