Spending the Five-Dollar Bill I Just Found


This morning, for the second time in four days, I found a dirty five-dollar bill while walking my dog. In my whole life, I don't think I've ever found that much cash. The universe is trying to tell me something. ("Really sorry I couldn't help with those MegaMillions numbers," perhaps.) Or maybe someone has signed me up for one of those Consumer Recreation Services adventures featured in The Game, and this is just the beginning.

Or I have a neighbor with a hole in his pants.

In defiance of wise counsel, I will likely spend it all in one place. That's where you come in. Head over to eBay and find the coolest, weirdest, most baffling item with an opening bid of $5 or less. The item should be something I could display on my desk.
