Philosophy that makes me feel better

The way to carry money……….
Here I am. I have just got back from shopping. I am sitting on the sofa looking at my stuff filled carrier bag. I am in a bit of a fizz, again. The bits I bought are safely in the bottom for sure, but I can only hope the paper money accrued on route ,thrown carelessly in, during frantic purchasing, is still there. I now realize once again that the couple of screwed empty ready salted crisp bags, I also acquired along the way, have unfolded themselves and  and are now floating around in the carrier, big time; and they may have pushed out  any of the  floating money in a flick during my various movements along route! So now I begin my ‘after shopping mantra’ a sort of prayer, about loose paper money which always float at some stage in the carrier bag I will be carrying, quite forgotten, during the various uncomfortable stages of travelling, that is until I get home………
It is good to carry money
In crumpled wads
In paper bags

….repeated three times during the process of emptying carrier bag.

And so my God gradually answers…… gentle tones:

‘The best way I like to carry money, actually, is messily.
Crumpled wads.
A paper bag is good’*

Feeling better already. Never actually lost anything in a carrier bag.  As far as I know.Gill McGrath©
