Hawthorne St. (Citizen Photo by Dan Tortorell) By ERMA BOMBECK It was right after I mailed our house payment check to our own address . .no, I'll take that back, it was right after I let my husband's insurance policy lapse that he said quietly, "Maybe paying the bills is getting to be a little too much for you. Why don't you let me take over writing the checks?" I can remember licking his hand and promising him I would never rest until they memorialized him on a 5-cenl postage stamp. "I'll show you how the checkbook works," I said excitedly. "I KNOW how the checkbook works," he answered patiently. It was full two days before he collared me and said, "What does NS beside a check stand for?" "It stands for 'No Stamp'," 1 answered. "That means I wrote the check and put it in an envelope and put it on the bookcase, but I didn't have a stamp to mail it, so I bent an arrow DOWN to the deposit line and added the check to the balance." "Maybe you'd better explain how the checkbook works," he said wearily. "Well, when the arrow goes UP, that's something different. That's when I start writing checks earlier in the week than when I actually have money in the bank. Then, when I deposit your check, I make an arrow UP to that point so I will have a balance to subtract from. You got it with the arrows now?" "1 think so," he said. "Good. When there's an SG, that means 'Somebody Goofed 1 on the balance. I don't sweat it anymore. Remember 1 used to bit my cuticles uniil they bled? Well, I draw a big, black, wavy line. That means we begin with brand new figures -- thr. bank's. Now, JM means 'Just mailed', so you naturally subtract the entry. It's not too tricky to understand, once you get the symbols down." "On this check to a sorority, you've got TB beside the entry." ' ' Y e s . That stands for 'Tough Beans.' It's an expression I picked up from the kids. You see when a check is older than six months, the bank has to check with you personally to see whether or not you want it to go through. When I see that a check has never been canceled or returned, I simply put TB beside it and spend the money all over again." "I see what you mean," he said slowly. "One more question. I almost hate to ask. What's APR?" "Good grief," I said, aghast, "that's a simple abbre- vation for April. I thought everyone knew that. If you think you can't handle the checkbook you'd better say so. You can't fool around with money, you know."
