But in 3 days this money will have no value...
Last night I had this weird dream. But as weird it was, I low key wish it was true. In my dream, it was the last Sunday of the year and I was relaxing on my favourite couch sipping some Ponche de Creme. I reflected on the bumpy ride that 2019 was and I began to laugh! I made it through all the madness didn't I? I made many mistakes but I accomplished a lot.
As I focused on my goals and how I was about to stamp into 2020 — with flair, confidence and dedication —my thoughts were interrupted by the sweet kisses of my boo. I turned to him but he gave me a look that I couldn't recognise. He walked around and sat next to me on the couch. And what he did next almost sent me straight to the grave.
He handed me a bag and whispered the words "this bag contains $350K...I couldn't spend all, so this is yours." As I opened the bag, i asked "where did you find this money?" He smiled and answered, "for years I've been working hard but not banking all of my earnings and with the change to the new $100 bill... I had deposit some and spend the rest." His eyes looked genuine and stressed at the same time. "In 3 days this cash will have no value...do what you want with it... Just don't try to bank it all because it might get seized without you getting to spend any."
I woke up. For days this dream has been haunting me and I have been asking myself many questions. What would I have done if this dream was true? What would I buy? Would I throw it away? Would I just leave it there?
Spending $350k in cash in three days should not be that hard, there are many things that I need. However, many businesses have already stopped accepting the old $100 bills so they can have a smooth transition from December 31st, 2019. What would you have done with the cash?
