    The Good: You are walking your dog when you come across a wallet containing $1,000 and no ID of any kind.
    the bad: it's a set up by the nasty neighbor watching you with a pumpaction and a telescope
    The Ugly: You're wearing heels and have no where to run.


    The Good: Your anniversary is next week.
