Money laundering

Sometimes all you can do is laugh.

Memorial Day weekend, I decided to take advantage of the sales and finally purchase a wine cooler. I have all these great bottles of wine that I just toss in the closet. If I’m going to spend all this money on wine, I should really store it at the proper temperature.

So I picked out a 12 bottle cooler at Best Buy. I thought about getting a bigger one, but really, I don’t want to have more than 12 bottles of wine lying around. It is just too much of an investment. So I went small.

Tall And Lanky Kinda Skanky gave me a gift card a year ago. I keep meaning to use it but haven’t. And then at some concert I received a card for another $10 off. I looked in the usual places for the cards, but came up empty. Then I searched those places again. And then I searched the mess on my table. And then I looked in places where they weren’t going to be.

I looked everywhere. My condo isn’t really that big, and there aren’t that many places to hide.

After a weekend of searching, I gave up. I bought the cooler while it was still on sale, but would have liked to get the $30 off.

Tonight I went to do laundry. When I opened the washing machine, I was surprised to see that my overalls and painting shirt were in there and smelly. I’d washed them a week ago, but forgot to dry them. So I threw them in the dryer for a while and put another load of laundry in the washer.

When it was time to move the load to the dryer, I took out the smelly overalls and shirt, realizing I’m going to have to wash them again. I cleaned out the lint trap. That is when I noticed that there was paper stuck in the lint trap. I wondered what it was.

I pulled the clothes from the washer and put them in the dryer. That is when I saw a little piece of plastic with Best Buy and $10 on it. And then I saw the gift card on the bottom.

I shook my head and snorted at the absurdity of it all.


Easter Birthday Weekend

I’m a little slow, but here are the photos from my weekend in DC for meine Schwester’s 30th birthday. We wandered around the monuments, drank and danced in an Irish pub, and made easter baskets that Mom sent.
