Reunions And Rekindlings, Part 2



How to get a childhood friend to accept repayment of $5 that you embarrassingly had to borrow while feeling like crawling under a rock and dying.

$5 bill
Ziploc bags in the following sizes: snack, sandwich, quart, gallon; 1 each
24 chocolate chip cookies, homemade preferred

1.)  Insert $5 in snack bag.  Add a note if preferred:

2.) Insert snack bag into sandwich bag along with cookies:

3.)  Insert sandwich bag into quart bag along with cookies:

4.)  Insert quart bag into gallon bag along with cookies:

5.) Sneak bag into target’s luggage.

Now you have successfully repaid your debt and managed to gift cookies as well!  This method can be used to present engagement rings, concert/theater tickets or keys to a new car.  I strongly warn against using this as a way of gifting puppies, kittens, goldfish, etc as this may have unexpected results.  Good luck!

As I may have mentioned, I had an old friend and his family come and visit over the Memorial Day weekend.  I hadn’t seen him in years and our kids got to meet each other and I finally got to meet his wife.  It was fun and relaxing other than this $5 fiasco.  And when I say fiasco, I mean in my own mind.  No one else would think anything of it, but I was mortified.  I shouldn’t have been as I’ve known him since middle school and he’s seen me puke, but I’m a loon.

Their visit was the motivation I needed to clean and paint the common spaces in the house and my craft room where they slept.  More on that to come in a later post, but I was batshit crazy in the days and weeks leading up to their visit trying to get everything done (hence the radio silence).   Good times!


    1. This looks pretty thought through on my end, but it was a mostly “I-can’t-sleep-wtf-gonna-make-cookies” moment. Everything else kind of fell into place so I got lucky. I could have also just thrown the $5 in their bag but that’s no fun.
