I’m sittin’ here with $6,137.70 in Canadian Tire money.
It consists of 31,079 bills, and weighs 62 pounds.
That’s not quite enough to pay the $7,333.75 bill from The Rogue Music Lab, but it gets closer every day.
What do you think? Is it possible? Will we hit seven grand? Can we ring that brass bell? Could there be $1,196.05 out there, gathering itself in all its fragments?
Now is the time, friends. The Caper’s nearly over. The fifteen cents that’s been languishing in the back of your glove compartment? The four dollars hiding in your garage? The stash you’ve been tryin’ to convince your stepfather to give up? Listen, and you’ll hear it: the Caper calls to it, softly, at night. Set it free! Those bills just wanna see some of the world and have one crack at show biz before it’s all over.
