$72 and a joke

April 1st, 2009 at 03:23 pm

I'll start with the April Fool's prank I experienced today:

I always pick up change when I see it on the ground. When I was walking across the parking lot today I saw a quarter on the ground. I bent to pick it up and it didn't budge! So I hit it with my shoe and still no budging. I looked closer and discovered that it had been glued to the ground! I thought that was really clever. I wonder how many other people tried to pick it up but couldn't.

Onto the $72. I bought a PO Box today! Yay! I got it for a whole year. I'm using the PO on the way to school so it will be convenient to pick up my mail.

I've already changed my mailing address with the school and with my bank. I will also need to change my mailing address on half.com. I'm trying to think of other places I need to change my mailing address for. The DMV is one.

    If it was a hot parking lot surface, sometimes the coins will melt to the pavement.

    I never knew coins could melt to the pavement! Interesting. The coin I saw was in a covered parking lot so I don't know if it would have melted. It's been warm the past few days though.

    My dad used to have a quarter glued to the floor of his tv repair shop with some REALLY strong glue. He would bet everyone a quarter that they couldn't pick it up. He would then glue the quarters up on the wall with their name under it. He had a LOT of quarters on the wall! Yeah, my dad's a prankster.

    My son did this in the school parking lot. He watched to see how many people tried to pick the quarter up!
