funny thing

so we went to jewel wednesday night to cash in our coins. our bucket was so full we couldn't add anymore. jewel has coinstar which if you get cash back they charge you like 8%. however if you get a giftcard there is no counting fee. we opted for circuit city as we were cashing in for some umhhh xbox accessories like the wireless connector. anyway standing there forever (because there are so many pennies) this dude walks up to me with a wad of money. i mean a whole huge wad of twenties. he hands me a twenty and says "i just won a bunch of money at the boats. too much money. i'll feel better if i give you a 20." i was standing there with this 20 like trying to process what he was saying/asking. i couldn't understand why he would want 20 dollars worth of coins. then it hit me, he was really giving me 20 bucks. he probably thought we were hurting for cash standing there cashing all our coins in after the holidays. i felt a little bad, like guilty. i wanted to say dude, we're cashing this stuff in to buy video game stuff not food! it was all so fast.
it rained a lot yesterday. streets are flooded. the paved trails are flooded. we might be dry by july to ride offroad at this point. i hope we don't get snow. if it freezes at this point i may have to invest in some studded tires. we could have ice races.

I'll take the 20 if you don't want it.

I'll take it if he doesn't want it.
And also, I'll take the gift card too.

What a nice guy. $20 is $20... 1/2 a new tire or something.

Austin is sunny but wet like you guys. But we should be off road tomorrow. It dries quick. Best to John...
