"Five million dollars. 

All I could do was stare at the check.  To be sure, I counted again: Seven figures, two commas.  Yup, this was definitely five million."

  1. lmbo, i was trying to think of those rules when i posted this morning. lol.
    yeah, i would be staring at that check while walking to the Porche autos. lol

  2. I'd pass out if I held a check for that amount in my hands!! But I'm sure that I would quickly recover and retire immediately!

  3. Thanks for posting your First Lines, ladies.

    I'd be staring and counting zeros on that check too.
