Last night as I was driving home from Scottsdale, I was stopped at a red light at the intersection of MacDonald and Scottsdale Road. I was in the left turn lane and glanced out the window. There in the street in the next lane to my left was a penny. It had been raining so, even though it was dark, the penny was shining, beckoning me.
I unfastened my seat belt, put the ol' Corolla in park, and hopped out to fetch it. Well, that penny was flush with the black pavement. It had been driven over so many times, it was seriously embedded in the asphalt. What a disappointment.
Found it, couldn't get it without some sort of prying implement, which I did not have handy, and afterall, it was just a penny, and I decided my safety was probably more important than doing major road construction at 8:15 at night.
