Who dosen’t?!?! I let my nephews use 30,000 in case to try to build a real life minecraft house out of dollar bills.

I fear for their artistic talents.

Either drug dealers, or people who don’t trust banks. I’ve known people to cash their paychecks and regularly have a wad of it around.

People who live in a Harvard Ave E home probably make a lot and are worth a lot more money than you and I.

Their $5,500 in cash laying around is probably equal to the $125 in cash I may have in my home.

Timmy, that part of Harvard Ave E is just north of E Roanoke St and most of the homes there are not particularly fancy. Maybe you are thinking of the part of Harvard E which is just north of E Roy?
