I'm all excited because I got out of work super-early today. It was a day at this school-based health clinic, which I thought was going to be like the ghetto-ass nurses office that they had at my high school, but which turned out to be a real, fleshed out clinic. They even give shots and draw bloods there! Best part is, we're on school hours, which means 8:30 to 3:00, baby. (Actually, I hate to tell you this, but we got out at 2:00.)

Because I had all this extra time, I actually got to return my extra cell phone today. It was surprisingly easy.

I would like to return this phone please.
(Shows receipt)

Could I possibly convince you to keep it?

Well, not really, because...then I would have two.

(Forks over $250 in cash.)

Wow, really?

Now I'm really glad that I paid in cash. They offered me the phone tax-free if I paid in cash, so I obliged, but all last night, thinking about returning it, I just kept thinking that because of the cash exchange, I was never going to see my money again. Did I mention I went to the ATM to get the cash, and all it spit out were these crisp, rainbow-colored new twenty dollar bills? How cool is that iridescent ink? And the golden 20s all over the back of the bill, like a little swarm of bees? I'm not so crazy about the watermark Andrew Jackson that you can see when you hold the bill up to the light, though. It's like Ghost Jackson.
