My good deed today? I spotted a penny on the ground and did not pick it up. This might sound trivial to you but it is a big deal for me.
I’ve been known to risk life and limb by pouncing on a penny as I’m jaywalking, narrowly missing oncoming traffic.
Not because I’m a cheapskate, mind you, or superstitious, believe it or not.
There’s just something special — and fun — about finding a random penny in your travels (of course a crisp $20 would be even more special, but hey).
So for me to leave it lying there was tough. I practically had to hold my hand back but I figured I’d let it lie (or is it lay?) so someone else could have the fun of discovering their lucky penny.
Strange thing is, about two blocks away, I spotted another one. And yes, I walked on by….
P.S. And now for something completely different, Canada’s Rick Mercer takes a hilarious tour of The Royal Canadian Mint. Enjoy!
