I am not sure why Chris is having such a hard time finding change in Boston, while I was there, I had NO troubles! Here are the finds that I made while in Boston;
- 1 quarter, 2 dimes and 1 nickel all at a pizza place I went for lunch while I was in West Concord
- 1 penny in our hotel lobby
- 1 dime & 1 penny at Logan Airport TSA
- 2 quarters, 1 dime and 3 pennies at various T stops in Boston
- 1 penny on the street while Chris and I were walking to dinner
When I got back home, I went to Schunck's and found 3 dimes, 5 pennies and a 1 cent Euro coin.
Finally, last night, Marti and I went out with some friends to the new Batman Dark Knight movie. Very good, and Heath Ledger as the Joker is just as good as advertised. On the way to the theater I found 1 penny in the parking lot. Then after the movie, Marti and I stopped off at McDonald's for some shakes (Sonic was out of ice cream!) and I found 2 dimes and 3 pennies. One of the dimes is pictured below, check it out;
Might not mean much to you, besides being a super dark dime. But it was minted in 1978, the same year I was born, and I found it a day before my birthday! I found that cool.
Finally, today, on my 30th Birthday, I found 1 penny in the apartment complex parking lot. While I don't mind getting a bit older, I am not a huge fan of being 30, because now when someone is talking about me, they can't say, "He did all this BEFORE he was 30", like they do in the movies. Unless of course they are talking about a Change Race blog, and then yes, I did that before I was 30! :-)
