I’m pretty sure a bank only has a fraction of its value on hand as paper cash. Most of the value is in stocks, bonds, and other investments. Customer accounts are in computer records, not physical cash, and a fire that burned all the cash would probably just amount to an insurance claim.
PSA to my middle-aged and older peers: Guys, we have to start shaving and plucking after a certain age. Yes, I shave my ears almost daily. At least once a week the eyebrows get trimmed and plucked, and the nostrils get a trimmer inserted. Don’t go around looking like the guy in the cartoon. You are grossing out everyone you meet. It’s the same reaction as if you weren’t wearing any deodorant.
One thing I think my mother did right raising me as a boy was that she was very open and matter-of-fact about such things. From when I was little, she always took care of her business with the bathroom door open. When I would come around, curious, she just explained what was happening, and showed me the supplies she was using, and where she threw them away. Thus, I never had any hangups about that part of the facts of life. I knew babies came from women from a very early age. What men and women did together to make it happen, however, I didn’t learn until I was almost a teen. She was more coy about that until she thought I “needed to know” at a much later age.
They’re starting to sound like a law firm.
I worked in a twin office building like that once, where the only thing you could see out most of the windows was the other building.
Is that the kid version of Alice’s “Fist of Death”?
When you factor in after school band/clubs/sports, and the day starting as early as 7:00 a.m., most of them are pretty close. There’s also homework and academic projects, often extending into weekends, so many families struggle with their kids having schoolwork and activity time commitments that go far beyond a traditional 9 to 5 job.
I bet a lot of adults out there wish they could get M-F 9 to 5 and weekends off. It’s getting more and more rare.
The Chicago Tribune provides the daily Jumble for free at their website, if anyone didn’t know and likes to do them. I don’t know what would happen to them if the Chicago Tribune goes under, though.
That counselor had better be careful not to get an arrow through the neck. She could find herself a ghost haunting the camp.
