God loves ME

A short while ago I walking a long circuit to stretch my quads after a long run yesterday and as I rounded a corner a gust of wind rendered my Bluetooth conversation inaudible. I decided it was a sign and immediately turned 180 degrees to return home by my original route. As I crossed the street I glanced down and saw $80 in a roll lying there on the pavement. The previous owner had not taken the precaution to note his name and address on the bills so there was no point in taking it to the cops in order for them to make sure it found its way to their rightful pockets. There was no-one around to inquire of losses. Accordingly I concluded that God had wanted me to have a little gift. For being such an all-round good guy. I've decided how to spend it and that will remain a matter for me and my conscience.

When I had my BMW, bought used, there was this strange noise that was bugging the crap out of me. So I decided I had enough and began to dismantle the interior to fix the problem. I found a plastic hide-a-key box and there was four 100 dollar bills stuffed in there.

Was cool to find it, but I ended up breaking a some sort of sensor for the a/c and had to buy a $120 part. So I made a little off the find.

That was a fun car, should have kept it. The guy I sold it too got drunk and crashed it a week later. Was a sad moment.

Mercedes Benz, enough said.

But, then again, it could have been SATAN!
See, if Satan had the money dropped, he'd be hoping that you'd pick it up, blow it on booze and drugs, climb into a car and kill some people. What's good for one may not be good for another.
