Jon Crispin's Notebook

Standing Quarter

Posted in Money, Nature by joncrispin on 28/12/2012

Well, it happened again today (click on the “it”).  When I posted a similar occurrence last year, my friend Alex reminded me of a “Twilight Zone” episode where a guy threw a quarter into a newspaper vendor’s box and the coin stood on its edge.  All the rest of the day he had the power to read minds.  As was typical of that program, it didn’t turn out so well.  I was in the process of putting a quarter into a parking meter this afternoon and it dropped into the snow and landed this way.  I wasn’t able to read minds, but it did make me happy.
