Friendly Reminder...Keep Your Chin DOWN

November 24th, 2017 at 01:27 pm

So...I had today off! I do not claim to work harder or longer than any one or group of individuals, however, man, I needed these last two days!

I got up at 5:30 a.m. (that old biological clock won't stay asleep) and headed to the gym. Today was an upper body day and cardio. Felt great! My local gym versus an "exercise room" off the lobby of a Hampton Inn...no comparison..lololol.

Anyway, after returning home at around 8:00 a.m., I would normally hit the shower...not today! Today, I brewed some coffee, sat, alone in my home office, read the news on line and watched a great Netflix Documentary about Jim Carrey and his role as Andy Kaufman back in ~1995 (Man on the Moon).

After giving myself a nice hair cut, I showered, dressed and headed out to run some errands. I had a check to deposit into my "Loose Change Fund", a document that needed to be faxed (yes, you read that correctly), a birthday card and other gift cards to pick up for Christmas and a quick stop at my Chinese Restaurant to order 10 quarts of their amazing Chicken and Rice soup for the football games on Sunday. That's when it happened...

While walking from the car to the restaurant, I noticed a bright, shiny dime! It was beautiful. I stooped and picked it up. Looking around to make sure someone hand't dropped it, I slid it into my pocket.

Now, to some, 10 cents doesn't seem like much, however, it inspired me. I started thinking about "luck" and sometimes, it's okay to wish upon it. After ordering the soup, I looked at my paper change and saw four crinkled one dollar bills.

I took those four one dollar bills and bought four one dollar scratch off tickets (I can't remember the last time I paid for a scratch off ticket) but said what the heck.

After getting home, I took care of some papers, etc., and scratched the four tickets. All together, a gross earning of $5.00, net $1.00. Rest assured, they will all end up in the Loose Change Fund.

The moral to my story, keep your chin down when walking around! You never know when you might stumble upon some Loose Change of your own!

    Aw sounds like you had a great day, way to go on the tickets. Can't say the last time I bought a scratch off but I've kept my chin down and have picked up plenty of change 😉

  2. Out of the Dark Says:

    Right!!! In my job, I have always felt funny picking up change, however, it's better than leaving it just lie there!!!!

    I miss our old campus parking meters that required change--there was a bonus at least once a week. Now they only take cards, much to my dismay. Years ago when I worked in brokerage there was a popcorn wagon stationed down the street. I can't tell you how many times I watched mostly brokers just dump their change on the street in front of it. I started thinking about what that meant for their attitude towards money...

    Wow, a dime! I'm jealous. Once in awhile I find a penny or two! You are right...keep an eye out!
