Today as I was walking out of the shop across the road, I found a five cent coin on the ground. I didn’t pick it up because I had Caleb on my back in the sling and didn’t want to bend over.
Then tonight, I went out to Coles to get some lettuce for tea (we had tacos), among other things, and the total came to $10.90. I had a $10 note, a $5 note, and 85 cents.
The moral of the story: Always pick up stray coins. You never know when they’ll be useful.
