TOM: I was having trouble sleeping one evening. I had gone to bed and then I woke up, so I went downstairs to just futz around for a little bit. I turned on my computer and I was looking at my e-mail and here was a message from my bank, B of A, saying that my account had dropped below $25. [MUSIC] At the time, it didn’t trigger anything in me because I only – I knew I had about thirty-something dollars in it and it was a account that I used to keep money for equipment materials, that type of thing, for my business. But anyway, so I thought of that and just eh, okay, fine. Then I went back to sleep and when I finally got up in the morning, all of a sudden I’m sitting there making my coffee and I’m going well, why did my account go down below $25? I haven’t used that account in a couple of weeks.
