Starving Student

While waiting for my TRAX line to rumble by...

I jumped into the street to pick up a quarter on the southbound TRAX line. Then I found two pennies - smashed to bits - on the northbound line. I picked them up. As I jumped back onto the platform a gentleman tapped me on the shoulder. I took out my headphones and he said in a concerned voice,
"Miss? Are you trying to collect enough change to buy a ticket?"

People here are really nice.

You and your mother! I still get a kick out of dropping some coins where I know she will find them!

I watched Eris go out onto State Street yesterday for a dime. There would have been a fight if I had seen it at the same time.

Athena, you drop them and I'll pick them up. It all adds up.
