Limitations of White Chocolate as a Medium of Currency

I can't find my wallet since last Thursday.  We keep checking the banks and credit card companies.  So far nobody is stealing my money.  Therefore, we're not panicked yet.  Our theory is that it is someplace aboard the boat.  If you think that things can't really get lost aboard a little boat, think again.

Anyhow, as a temporary wallet, I am using a plastic sandwich bag. I protects stuff, it folds and stores easily in my pocket.   Last night, we went out for a night at the movies.  We left in a bit of a hurry, after dark, with the lights out.  I grabbed my sandwich bag on the way out of the boat and put it in my pocket.  I got to the theater, ordered two tickets, and grabbed my bag to pay.  I pulled out of my pocket a sandwich bag with bits of white chocolate.  Whoops, wrong bag.  They didn't work as currency.

Anyhow, Libby paid, and we saw the new Girl With the Dragon Tattoo movie.  It was good.  We both read all three of the Millennium Trilogy books and loved them.  We also saw the three Swedish made movies about LIsbeth and hated them.  It's remarkable that we're so interested in Lisbeth's story that we're watching a third set of productions  of the same stories.

By the way, if you're unfamiliar with the whole Millennium Trilogy, I recommend the books.  Skip the movies.
