15 cents short

I want a Coke. I always want a Coke. I'm not even sure why people still say things to me like, "Cynth, do you want a Coke?" Of course I do! Just hand me one, or point to where I can go get it.

Anyway, I counted the console change (I'm hanging out in the car between classes; it's what I do), and I have 3 quarters, 3 dimes, and 11 nickels. Sodas here are stupidly expensive, and it's $1.75 for a bottle of Coke. Crap! I only have $1.60.

But that's not even true. I've also got 17 pennies and a Canadian quarter. I don't even have to know the daily exchange rate to know that's more than 15 cents. I think the machines in this country need some sensitivity training. They discriminate against foreigners and pennies, which are statistically among the poorest of our currency. Typical. The politicians don't care because pennies can't vote. It's a travesty and a gross miscarriage of justice.

I really want a Coke.
