two cents is the theme

Saving log - $3 tip box
Spending log - $1.19 coffee + $4.50 curry

At lunch today, the owner of the curry shop asked me if I wanted anything else.
"No," I said.
The guy next to me in line said, "You're supposed to ask for the cash register when he says that." Then he smiled. So much for his two cents!

Found two pennies on the street one after the other this aft. As I bent to pick up the second one, I thought, wouldn't it be funny if one of my friends was playing a practical joke on me. C'mon, it would be easy to lead me anywhere... just put a penny down every ten feet or so.

I looked at one of my DRP stocks (MMM), and found out that they had raised their dividend by 2 cents per share. The stock's now 50 cents/ share/ quarter. I'm getting about $2 more in dividends than what I expected.

    We've thought the same thing! If anyone saw us regularly pick up coins on our walk, they could really play with us by leaving coins at intervals and watch us. They could lead us all over the place!

    On the college campus where I used to work, I once tried to pick up a quarter that was super-glued to the sidewalk. Luckily, it was late in the day, and the sidewalk was deserted. Apparently the kids who had done it had had their fun and moved on.
