art major + music major



there are so many things wrong with this i'm not even sure where to start...

yes, this is a check for .05 cents.

no, it is not a misprint.

here is most everything (edited) that ran through my brain when i opened the envelope...

1. do i seriously drive to the bank and cash this?...gas is $3.00 a gallon
2. how much do stamps cost?
3. i SHOULD drive to the bank and cash this (or should i say coin?)
4. should i ask the bank teller for all pennies?
5. our poor mailman has the flu...i hope he doesn't find out he just delivered a .05¢ check
6. how do you tithe 10% of 5 cents?
7. i'm assuming this is after taxes
8. so this is what my dad was thinking when i told him i was dating a music major in college

and yes, i deleted our mailing address from the scan...i was worried someone might come and steal our riches.

all .05 of them.

i've got to start playing the lottery.

hahaha i remember as a kid having a share of stock (that's right...one) of Shoney's or something and getting these ridiculous checks in the mail. i seriously wonder how much it costs them (paper, ink, postage, salaries) to even mail these little suckers. the only "perk" was occasionally getting coupons for free meals.

don't spend it all in one place!

Kiersten, I only recently discovered your blog from Susan & Eric's link. Good news today about Baby Luke. God is so good. You are absolutely hilarious. You should do Christian stand up comedy. If no one has invented it then you should. So, so very funny. And since I know Rob it's even funnier. I like his blog too - but it's not funny! Oh, I'm Ronda's mom in case you were wondering. We're from Independence.
