Somewhere between Monday night and Tuesday noon. I lost or misplaced my wallet.
Once I discovered it was gone, I immediately notified my bank and cancelled all my cards. Leaving me with no cash in my possession.
Tina fortuitously has a stash of cash for these sort of emergencies.
But, for me a guy that almost entirely shops via credit card. I find myself in unfamiliar territory. I have no access to my own money in the bank for a few more days and it is an unpleasant feeling to effectively broke in my own little mind. Even though there is money in the bank.
My spending power is indelibly linked to those cards that I currently don’t have.
The second issue was, my identity. I know who I am. yet, without my ID I felt disconnected from the world. I couldn’t prove to the world that I am who I say I am!
It has been an interesting experience, this loss of my wallet. As my teacher Satyen Raja use to say, “A most interesting evolutionary experience!”
