Found – on the floor at a convenience store
I had been out running errands and decided to pop into a local convenience store to grab a quick cup of coffee. I rushed into the store, passed the newspapers on the right, and went straight to the coffee counter. I made myself a small decaf with some light cream and took a stroll around the store to see if there was anything else that I wanted to buy to accompany the coffee. Donut? Cookies? Chips? Nope. Nothing looked interesting. Then I thought I should take a look at the newspapers. Maybe pick up a copy of the Wall Street Journal which I like to read to keep on top of business news. So I circled around back to where I had originally come in and rushed past the newspapers. This time I stopped dead in my tracks. There was a dime on the floor in front of the newspaper display. I picked it up and bought the WSJ and my coffee and was on my way back out into the cold.
