A few minutes ago I thought I would check in on Ashbery's A Wave, one of the over 100 books I'm currently reading. For bookmarks I sometimes use old envelopes. After re-reading "Destiny Waltz", I happened to glance at my envelope bookmark. And then my brain went something like, Derrrr...uhhh...iz dat uhhhh....PAYCHECK?!?!
And yes, yes it was. A paycheck dated 7/9/08. A paycheck marked "VOID AFTER 3 MONTHS". Now, I guess 3 months from 7/9 would be 10/9, right? Ninety days would be 10/7 (today), or 10/6 (yesterday) if 7/9 counts as "day 1"... but since it says "3 months" and not "90 days", I'm good to go, right? Right? I know that even if it is void all I have to do is ask my employer for a new check, but I would like to avoid the embarrassment.
