Yesterday, as I exited my car in the Post Office parking lot, I realized it has been ages and ages since I have found any money on the ground. No one is dropping change anymore and leaving it; they are picking up even the most insignificant and crusty penny.
I used to find change all the time, at least once or twice a week, in the Post Office lot and in restaurants or malls, but no more. I feel cheated. It is always a lucky day when I find change, be it a lowly penny tails up - or a shiny dime - kind of like the universe is rewarding me for some good deed unremembered. But nowadays, I am saddened by the lack of those rewards, so could I ask a favor? Next time you see a coin in the street, leave it there for me to find, please?
