Nothing makes me happier than logging into my facebook page and seeing comments about finds from my friends. ESPECIALLY when they post gems like this:
Ellie’s Notes from the field (April 28, 2010)
Here’s my latest penny story:
I walk to work the same way everyday, I’m definitely a creature of habit. This makes looking for pennies interesting, because when I find one I wonder how many days I’ve walked by it before I could see it. Yesterday, I was at the corner of 14th and P Street waiting to cross, I look down and see this green circle. I hesitate and then decide it’s gum not a penny. I cross the street and continue my journey to Starbucks.
This morning, I’m walking as I always do and I find a nice shiny penny at 14th and Rhode Island. This reminds me of the gum from yesterday, I just can’t seem to let it go. I walk to 14th and P look down, still there. Still looks like gum, but I say to hell with it, and pick it up. IT WAS A PENNY! The most oxidized, old, dirty penny, but a penny nonetheless. Just goes to show you can never be sure and it doesn’t hurt to get a little dirty.
Best. Penny. Ever.
Yeah, it’s official. I have the greatest friends on the planet! Or should I say…
Best. Friends. EVER!
