The Happiness $6 Can Bring
Well I'm on my way to making good on my resolution to read more classic novels. Tonight I finished my first one, Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. It was just a quick read but that's one down and many more to go. I've been waiting on some other books to show up in my mailbox that I ordered the day after Christmas but they haven't arrived yet. So tonight around 7 I made a trip to Barnes & Noble to pick up my next bestseller read. I had a hard time finding this particular book so I decided to pick up another book and quicky because I had an appointment at the gym at 7:30. So I hurried and grabbed another book that is on my list to read and went to the front counter. Up at the front, the book series I had been looking for was all there and I just decided to buy both books because I was in a hurry. When the cashier opened my 'second choice' book there was $6 cash just sitting behind the counter!!! How's that for luck???? Things like this never happen to me. . . ever! So my $16 bill ended up being $10. I always knew Thursday were my favorite days becuase it's the beginning to the weekend. This made my night and just added to my love of Thursdays.
