Name something you found; what was it and where did you find it?
I want to say something really silly like; ‘I found herpes!’ or ‘I found a puppeeeee!’ But I just can’t make myself do it. I guess that’s just a reflection of how silly I can be while writing posts at 11:30pm. Hmm… well considering its taken me so long to get started today, I should just be pleased that I’m writing anything at all!
So… something I found….
I remember while I was still living with Mum, I must have been about fifteen at the time. My friend and I were walking home from school, but the back way, because we’d just been to the park. We’d been on the swings, generally chatting (probably about boys and how gross they were) before taking the street that would lead to her house before mine.
We stepped off the pavement and onto the road and I remember catching sight of a piece of paper fluttering. I wouldn’t normally have paid attention to it, but this piece of paper had the Queen’s face on it. So did the one right behind it.
I’ve probably never moved so fast in my life!
£10 and £20 notes.
And not a soul in sight.
My friend and I did a crazed sort of happy jig and immediately started figuring out how to spend it. Which we did. Quickly. Starting at the corner shop across the street, with a hefty handful of sweets. I think she bought cigarettes (ick).
Why can’t that happen to me these days?! Finding £30 just randomly on the floor would be lovely right about now! *grumble, grumble*
