Oh, how I’d wish they’d mess the story up.
But that’s usually about all of the hard cash I can scrounge up.
My luck would never be so good that I could get robbed of $268, or any decent amount, and then later be able to hold my head up high in public once the word got out.
What father with three daughters – and with weddings inching creeping up closer on the calendar – could hope otherwise?
Last month, one of the girls and her fiancé announced the date of April 9 for their big event.
Maybe I should just stop complaining about the $2.68 in my pocket.
It might be the largest amount of cash I’ll have in my wallet for quite awhile.
Yes, I know it’s dumb to fret about this kind of stuff, robbery and news reports and all, but I do.
This is why I’m drawn to articles on the internet like this one:
Now I worry about walking across an intersection someday, and get hit by a truck or something, and within seconds, first-responders and passer-bys will pick up my phone and see that I only have apps designed for the “really average” on my phone.
Right now, I have apps that’ll tell me the weather, Detroit sports scores, what items to pick up the store, when to get get my car serviced, and where to find my phone when I misplace it.
Until this reading this article, I never realized how boring and routine my current roster of apps is.
(Which is so unlike me, of course!)
But this is all about to change.
I’m on a mission.
Soon, I’ll have these 10 apps on my phone and I’ll be ready to claim the future success that’s bound to come my way.
Other people can choose the roads less traveled for their personal journeys toward achievement and significance.
I’m charging straight ahead to the App Store.
I’m even going to spend some time with that new team communications app SLACK which is garnering rave reviews all over.
So, my days of worrying about muggers and getting run over by a truck are over.
I can envision the bright glow of success on the horizon.
I just hope I can get there before April!
