Today Marti and I had a mission. First, Marti wanted to get a cowboy hat because in 2 weeks we are going to Rodeo Houston to see the Rodeo and a Leann Rymes concert. While walking into the Woodlands Mall, I found 1 penny in the street.
We then wanted to watch the IU vs Michigan basketball game, so we went to a local bar and had lunch and watch IU win at Michigan.
Then I wanted to go to Fry's Electronic store to pick up some stuff. We wanted to get a second external hard drive to back up our first, along with some CD jewel cases, so I could replace the broken ones we had, and continue to sell off our CD collection on eBay.
While walking into Fry's I noticed that they had some sort of promotion going on, because they had fake money taped to the ground. Thankfully it grabbed my attention, because after a quick scan of the area, I noticed that there was a REAL bill on the ground. At first I thought I had hit the jackpot with a $5 bill, but then as I got closer I noticed this........
That is right, a $50 dollar bill. Well I picked it up and quickly caught up with Marti. As we walked to the back of the store, I told her what happened and actually asked her if I SHOULD turn it in. See, many times Marti is my moral compass and while I was already excited about keeping it and making this post, I felt I needed to consult with someone with......well.......higher moral standards than my own. Marti didn't hesitate and said that I should keep it, because if I turned it in, an employee would just pocket it. So thankfully I have already passed my $100 mark, and I can count this toward the daily totals. I think that I have beaten Chris for the month of March, and possibly the year of 2006 already! But knowing Chris, he will probably go on some streak of finding $50's and $100's! Either way, I leave you tonight with a picture of my new best friend!
Total for the Day - $50.01
Total for the Race - $160.00
