It was a heads-up 1995, totally unexpected.
THURSDAY, September 10, I had a horrific moment in the Sis-Town Casey's when I turned after paying for T-Hoe's weekly gas, and saw A PENNY where there had been no penny before. All the while I'd been waiting, behind two lines and four people, there had been no penny. I guess someone had been standing on it, or dropped it as they left.
I COULD NOT HARVEST this one! To do so would have meant putting my Valedictorian head inches away from a lady's butt. I was not willing to risk that! First of all, I might have been pelted with pizza slices and sandwiches for ample-rumpusing the lunch crowd waiting behind me. Secondly, that lady might have farted, which I hear can spread the VIRUS, and her butt was not wearing a mask. So I left there a bit saddened.
Don't you worry about penniless Val. I proceeded to mail Genius's weekly letter, and then on to the School-Turn Casey's for scratchers. While chatting with a former student who was clerking, I spied A DIME!
Oh, yes. You must have a practiced eye to detect some of these little camouflage-y coins! Like this one hiding behind the pistachios.
It was a face-down 2005. My second dime this week! It took a little sting off the pain of missing out on the ladybutt penny!
FRIDAY, September 11, The Pony and I went to pick up Little Caesar's for our lupper (lunch-supper). Hick was 2.5 hours out of town at a funeral for his cousin, so this short-temper cook had the night off! They don't sell scratchers at Little Caesar's, so I went by the Backroads Casey's on our way back home. I was obviously meant to be there at that time.
I barely saw this sneaky little trickster, hiding behind the four feet of a lady with a tween daughter buying two 32 oz fountain drinks. It was shoved way against the wall under the gum rack. I had to use a winning scratcher to drag it out where I could nab it! Lots of ample-rumpusing was involved. I hope that snippy little manager girl was watching on her surveillance camera!
It was a face-down 2000 dime. Nothing wrong with the gum rack! It was just hiding my dime.
That's 3 COINS this week, all DIMES, to add 30 CENTS to Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune.
2020 RUNNING TOTAL

Farts can spread the virus? No wonder the world's in a mess!ReplyDelete
Dimes instead of pennies seems like a good deal to me.
Not to be indelicate (you know what a proper, well-mannered lady I am), but apparently "scientists" are testing sewage and finding the VIRUS in it. The way I see it, sewage contains poop, and farts come from the same place poop comes from, and farts would be unsmellable unless there were particles floating around in the air. So I will say yes, farts can spread the VIRUS. After all, I read it on the innernets...Delete
I will happily harvest any dimes that I can get away with!
