Lost and found


Edna: Oh my stars! Margie, quick, get in here!

Margie: Edna, have you started another fire on the stove?

Edna: Margie, shut up and listen! You know that purse I got at the Goodwill yesterday? Well, just look what I found inside of it!

Margie: Edna, do you see my spectacles on my face? No, you don't, so tell me what it is.

Edna: It's going to make you sorry you were ever mean to me, that's what it is. My lands, it's a fancy necklace! Go get your glasses so you can see these diamonds. And they're not rhinestones either, I used your bureau mirror to do the glass-cutting test. Get your magnifying glass too, I do believe this is a Cartier mark on the clasp. Oh, I'm going to be rich!

Margie: Edna, you'll have a stroke if you don't calm down. Let me see that. You say it cuts glass? My mirror isn't real glass, idjit.

You'd best take this to the jeweler's before you go spending any money.

Edna: Oh, good idea. You go call Cousin T while I make a list of things I'm going to buy when I sell this. It's a good thing I bought this purse, you tried to talk me out of it.

Margie: Call him yourself. I've got my own list to make.

Edna: Hold on there, sister! What makes you think you'd be buying anything with my necklace money?

Margie: All this information I have on you that you don't want me to tell.

Edna: I truly hope you're not suggesting blackmail, because that's a two-way street you harpy. However, it does occur to me in all this excitement that maybe the decent thing to do is try and find out who really owns this necklace and give it back to them. Surely they didn't mean for it to end up at the Goodwill.

It sure is pretty, though....

Margie: Deputy Jimmy says anything that's thrown or given away belongs to the finder and her sister.

Edna: You're making that up. That's it, I've decided; I paid for this purse so the purse and its contents are my responsibility. I'm going down to see Deputy Jimmy right now and get him to help me find the rightful owner. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I kept this necklace. It just wouldn't be right.

Margie: That's fine, Edna. Do the right thing and give up your vacation this year. You already said you can't afford it. You can just stay here with me and we'll do housework, clean carpets, and... Edna?

Isn't that everyone's dream? The only thing I've ever found in a purchase at Goodwill is dustbunnies!

I'm with Margie, finders keepers :)

Finders keepers losers weepers. That was the saying we had growing up. I did a bit of weeping myself.
Now if you need help spending the money, let me know. I could use a vacation this year also.
