(noun, etymology Dutch from ‘boedel’: estate, possession, inheritance, stock.). 1. Crowd, pack, lot, as in ‘the whole boodle.’ 2. a. Counterfeit money b. Money acquired or spent illegally or improperly, particularly when used in bribery for political purposes. 3. Slang for money in general.

Trust someone you believe can trust with a potentially-frightening sum of your cash. Ask this person to hold on to the cash for a day for you. Retrieve it the next day. How do you feel?

Trust someone you don’t know if you can trust with a less-frightening sum. For example, you might give a stranger going into a store $20 and ask her to buy something for you because you have to run to the post office. If you can get someone to agree, come back on an agreed-upon time and see if she’s there with your item. How does this feel?
