Overheard on the UP express

Ma says to store the money where it’s safe, under the mattress. I think about if the house burns down and what then what then. Ma says stop thinking about fire or things are gonna catch. I roll my eyes, but when she’s not looking, wonder if she’s right.

We’ve collected five thousand dollars, nearly. Four thousand, nine hundred and seventy three. Every time Mrs. Dallas pays me I slide the money under there.
