A somewhat remarkable thing happened this morning. I went to the nearby variety store (which I rarely do) to purchase a couple of 'rolls' of peppermint Certs (in preparation for tomorrow morning's dentist visit). I don't get a lot of opportunities to get rid of change so I already had a rough idea of how much I had in my wallet prior to the vendor telling me that it was going to cost me $2.92: Just a little more than I had hoped. Should I pull out a five? I wondered, but I kept on counting: one loonie, seven quarters, one dime, one nickel, and two pennies. It was the exact amount of change that I had!
