friday november 7

today i was leaving a pay-what-you-can show intending to leave two toonies and a loonie ($5 seems to me like a pretty standard amount for "pay what you can"). so, it was somewhat discouraging when i went to drop my coins into the bucket to see that there were already a bunch of $10 and $20 bills in there. those bills not only made me feel a little guilty about my modest contribution (maybe they were combined payments from multiple people?) but also cushioned the fall of my change so that i didn’t even get the satisfaction of hearing my bunch of coins jangling around the bottom of the bucket.
