My grandma used to do this to my sister and I all the time. Grandma "If something happens where is the silverware?" Me and my sister "Under the guest bed." I am not sure if it is related but when my sister and I travel with email each other how we want our "assets" divided, ie, 'you can have my $12.' We believe that gmail is legally binding.
When I was living "off the radar" and my land lady only took cash and my job was paying in me in cash, I had $100 bills around a lot. Now I have a couple for emergency money. After Sandy when there was no more cash to be had in the local ATMs, I realized I needed emergency cash. I am less likely to use the emergency cash if it is $100 bills.
@la_di_da don't be paranoid, you know if you have them. Or at least everyone I have know that has them (including myself) knew when they had them. Plus if you are going to be paranoid there is SO MANY places you can get them besides your bed.
I got an Otis futon from this site: http://www.futons.net/ And it's great and wonderful. When I was looking for a new mattress I went to those futon stores around Union Square and just tried them out. But then I went and got my futon from this website. I know it is a horrible thing not to buy it in the store, but the guys at the stores are so pushy and really turned me off. The Otis futons are made in NY State. Get a metal bed frame, bed bugs have a harder time climbing on metal.
@Charlsie Finally someone who went to more camps I did! Golf camp, tennis camp, 4H camp, leadership camp, nerd camp, zoo camp, and regular old day camp.
I am so glad someone shares my secret love of laughing at people in the Real Estate Section in the NYTimes. Well 1/2 laughing, 1/2 "are you people insane?!?"
