The answer to the $ 900 question
The reason I asked him to pull the money back out of the bank was more of a CYA move than anything. I had all these visions of the original money having been elicit drug money, and that the numbers had already been marked down by the Government. I had these visions of us, being at our respective places of work, and the Feds busting through the cubicles, looking for us.
But then, even after we had pulled the amount out, I had these visions of that money still being traced to us, because of course, the bank wasn't going to give us THAT exact money back. I just knew that we were in the middle of a Government sting operation, and it was out of our control.
But of course, I do not openly admit my paranoia to just anyone ... just the entire Internet community. Because in our small circle of friends and family, I was the altrustic one... the one who said "we REALLY should take the high road, just in case someone is really looking for that money."
Poor Ace was left holding the money bag, looking like the greedy one. And he wasn't.
But don't tell any of my friends.... we don't need their image of me, the Saint, turned into the image of me, the Conspiracy Theorist.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
