Where Has All My Money Gone? It Ran Away With My Memory

My billfold has this strange Bermuda Triangle-like phenomenon going on. For example, sometimes I might go to pay for something and then ask myself, "Where's that 10 dollar bill that was in here?" After applying intense interrogation methods to determine the guilty party (I grill each of the usual suspects one by one: my son, my daughter, then the dog) - I try to recall every item I have purchased since the money was last seen. This is no easy task. When I start recalling different events, I keep distracting myself, interrupting myself, and just generally getting so sidetracked in my thoughts that I don't even remember what I was trying to bring to mind. But really, I guess that’s a whole other story…

That would be WAY too much trouble, as I BUY too many THINGS! At least I know whose fault it is.

Come see my new site at Miss Cellania!

Hivy, like Miss C I know who the culprit is when I find something broken, something not done, money....
(or anything else) missing.
There has to be some advantages to living alone, but do I ever make up for it when I have house guests, they get blamed for everything that's happened in the last month!!!!
How is Jules doin'?

How come money disappears, but it never ever magically doubles? It just isn't fair!!!

And don't you just love it when the bills disappear but they suddenly seem to have been exchanged with enough pennies to form a line from here to Timbuktu? Or is that just me and my wallet?

I agree with Jamie Dawn ... why doesn't it multiply, instead of disappear !?!?!
Take care, Meow

On the rare occasions I HAVE money, this happens to me to (Hmmm? Wonder if that's why the occasions are so rare? LOL)

I haven’t been making it around my blogroll much lately, but trying to play catch up today. Hope you have a great weekend!

Might the culprit be... You? I'm generally to blame when money is missing from my wallet.

You know for as often as this happens I wonder aloud... why doesn't this ever work in the opposite? Why can't I ever open my wallet and with pleasant surprise exclaim... where did that $100 come from?

I guess I'm not too old to dream.

Oh, you, too? I go around accusing everyone, then come to find out, it was somewhere where I put it to hide it from everyone else! Geez...don't you just hate that...

You are extremely witty and entertaining. I'm at work today on the Monday before the 4th and I'm the only idiot here... bored out of my mind! I started to fall asleep so I went to "google.com" and typed in "Keep me awake" and this came up! I've read all your blogs --- KEEP WRITING! :) Infact - publish a book with your thoughts, I'm loving it! - Thanks - Jessica Roberts luvduvxoo@aim.com
