I'm In the Money

While sorting through the mail the other day, I came across a most-curious thing.

Amidst all of the usual bills, statements and junk mailings, there was an envelope that was most definitely a check.

A check???!!!


A check.

Addressed to me.

How curious.

It was from Hearst Publishing, and my mind raced with the possibilities of what it could be for....and more importantly, how much it would be for....

Did I win a contest?

Did I win a sweepstakes?

Did I...gasp...win the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes?

(Nah...I knew better than that - there were no balloons, roses or TV cameras at my front door. Darn.)

So, with fingers trembling, heart racing, I carefully opened up the envelope to see how much my check was for...visions of new shoes, exotic vacations, and a fancy, schmancy restaurant dancing in my head.

And then I saw it:


A whole $1.81.


Can I even get dinner at McDonald's for that??!!

I'm not really sure, actually! The stub says, "The attached check is the difference you requested for the better offer you received on a subscription to Good Housekeeping."

I don't ever remember requesting ANYTHING! :)
