Somebody’s made a payment on my credit card.
Risking sounding like Goldilocks, that was my conclusion after going over my monthly credit card statement.
There it was: the amount of the generous payment, even the check number.
Perhaps I had made a payment and had forgotten to record it. This wouldn't have been the first time. But now the porridge thickened; this check number wasn’t the same as any I had written.
This unexpected windfall seemed too good to be true. And, of course, it was.
