TWO PENNY OPERA: So I look in the mailbox when I get home for lunch today, and I see we've received an envelope from our old natural gas provider, Northern Illinois Gas. Through the address window, I detect the colored texture of a check, so I eagerly rip the envelope open and indeed see that we've received a refund from NI-Gas . . . to the tune of $.02. An old Monty Python sketch immediately comes to mind. ("I embezzled it!") And when I show the check to wife Becky, the first thing she asks is, "Will it throw the company's books off if we don't cash it?"
