Last night was The Police concert at the Bowl. Normally that would be a pretty darn good thing in and of itself, but there was a particularly memorable moment.
We stopped to get our seat cushions. I said to the young man "Two, please", and then I apologised for not having anything smaller than a $20. He said "That's Ok. Your change will be $18.50, unless you can guess which state is on this quarter, and then you can have them for free. Your hint is that it is an East Coast State."
Well, I guessed New York, as you do. I was RIGHT!!! He said that was the first time anyone had ever guessed the correct state.
Definitely the best thing!
