Well, to take the “pennies from heaven” concept one step further, I thought, how about leaving my own pennies here, there and everywhere for others to find.
Don’t worry, I’m not paving the sidewalks with copper, just a few selectively placed one-cent pieces that might bring a smile to someone … somewhere.
(This is sort of a Valentine deed … last year, I delivered a few anonymous cards to some neighbours but a friend rightly pointed out that this could end up causing some uncomfortable questions from spouses etc. Oops.)
So where did I leave the coins? Places that I thought would be more novel than nuisance: On a stone half-wall downtown, on a table in my office tower lobby, a window ledge in a clothing store, a bench in the bus shelter … you get the gist.
I should leave at least one on the pavement… for old time’s sake ….
P.S. Speaking of pavement….
