At the Wash 'n' Fold this afternoon:
Sweet Young Thang: (Handing me my laundry) That'll be $17.76, please.Well, I guess. In certain circles.
Me: My favorite number!
SYT: (Handing me my change) $2.23 is your change... and is 1776 really your favorite number?
Me: One of 'em. Coz it ain't every year a great country is founded now, izzit?
SYT: (Flash of recognition, followed by a brilliant smile) Oooh...smaaart!
