I have a confession to make. I hide money. Why?

Well, you know that feeling when you put on a pair of just washed jeans, stick your hand in the pocket and pull out a $20, or even a $5?

Or even a dollar?

Shut up I’ve been out of work for a year. I get excited about a quarter.

Anyway, isn’t that the best feeling?

I think it is. In fact, I like that feeling so much that I put money places where I know I won’t find it for a long time. Long enough that I forget that I hid it in the first place.

Sometimes I hide bills our in winter coats right before they get packed away for the summer. Getting coats out is always kind of depressing because that means it’s actually really cold outside. Reaching in my pocket and finding a $20 at least makes me smile.

Suitcases are also great but since I became a flight attendant not nearly as effective. However, there are some inner pockets that I almost never use. When I get around to cleaning them out extremely rarely every once in awhile I find a $20.

I’m pretty sure those are the main places I hide money. Of course, I’m not positive about that. Which obviously is the whole point, isn’t it?

So, you better stay close to me. And hope you outlive me. When I’m ridiculously old and finally kick the bucket? Cleaning out my house is going to be like going on a treasure hunt.
