The Fascinating Details of My Life

Rather than try to concoct some random tidbit you care nothing about, I'll instead bore you with the most interesting part of my day.

Well, my day was really actually full of mundaneness, mundanity, mundanishness. It was ya know, a typical day.

Except that I got my first Western Union. I received an hCG payment via Western Union today and it was my first experience picking one up. Wow, it's really sad when the most interesting part of my day is something so drab. However, I've always wondered how this process works and so it was interesting to me! Let me briefly enlighten you if you've never had this fascinating experience either!

So, a person sends you money. Period. They give you a WU number. You go to any place that "does" Western Union. You fill out a brief form, sort of like a shipping label at the Post Office. You have to identify who you're expecting $$ from, how much and them hopefully provide the number the person gave you. Evidently, WU has a server that stores the information and when your WU locale logs into the server, it identifies you (via a driver's license) as the correct recipient. Then your WU locale prints a check for you that you can cash right there, or take to your bank. You sign a little form saying you got the $$ and wah-la! You've got cash! It took 7 minutes and 43 seconds.

So...sorry to bore you with mundicracity of my life but there you go. Not all days can be supercalifragalalisticexpialadocious.

Are you on a journey to post every day? Just wondering. :)

Hmmm. I guess this does look like sort of a post you'd do if you were TRYING to fill each day. But no. I just chose a topic and filled up a page. Check!
