Tanning with a Purpose*

I always take the subway to my Wednesday knitting Meetup. I only had one token left, so on my way into the subway, I stopped to purchase more tokens at the machine. I usually buy 8 at a time - it comes to $18, so if you put in a 20 dollar bill, you get 8 tokens and $2 change.

Today, the machine sounded like a jackpot - the coins kept on coming. The only thing missing was the bright lights and ringing bells. At first I thought that the machine had malfunctioned and given me way more change than it was supposed to. Then, when I started digging the coins out of the slot, I realized that they were all nickels. Two dollar's worth of nickels.

I cannot believe that a TTC token vending machine punked me.


As of tomorrow, Somerset is no longer radioactive.

To celebrate, we put a month's worth of used kitty litter into our green bin. Special treat for the collection crew!

*The title has nothing to do with the post. It was a line from a newspaper ad that caught my eye as I glanced at it on the subway. Turned out that I had misread it - it actually read "Training with a Purpose". I like my version better.

Well if you ever get mugged on the subway, just stick the nickles in a sock and you're good to defend yourself!

I saw the picture first and thought you were buying tokens using your change jar! I say put all the nickels right back into the machine the next time you need tokens.
