The Bag

A Blessing or a Curse?

By Gail WyliePublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read

Tripped! I lay in the dirt cursing. My morning run ruined. A shoulder strap snaked across the path. I grabbed and pulled. A leather bag emerged from the underbrush. I picked it up, fully intending to drop it into the next garbage bin.

Home again, where I realized I was still carrying it. I unzipped it and dumped it onto my kitchen table. Banded packets of hundred dollar bills tumbled out.

Now someone is knocking on my door. I stare in horror. Wondering who is on the other side. Wondering if it is safe to open.
