Last night I had a horrible confrontation just before leaving work. I was so mad that I literally saw spots and my head felt funny. Anyway, Nathan, sweetheart that he is, took me out to dinner. The wait was longer than promised, so the manager came into the lobby and did a giveaway for a free appetizer. It was a smart idea - it occupied everyone's attention and inspired a buzz of excitement.
To win, you needed a 1985 quarter. I didn't have a single quarter in my purse. I thought about checking in the car, but decided that was ridiculous and someone would probably win before I got back.
When we got in the car to drive home, I pulled out the ashtray and there it was. A 1985 quarter. ARGH!
