3. That wallet on the sidewalk meant opportunity or trouble, and I was up for either one. (Sandra Dowling)

4. Bending down to collect his wallet off the pavement, Jerry’s mind turned to something else: the long split down the back of his trousers. (Natasha Long)

8. Darren told me to forget the wallet and keep running, but the faded picture was worth the risk. (Drew Iverson)

10. Swooping down to pick up the wallet, she hoped there was at least enough money in it to continue the electrolysis on her hairy forearms. (Ken Mosier)
