FOUND: An Offering From A Scofflaw?

Found: Seeing as it’s probably one of the last days of the year where The Shoegazer can make the approximately 2-mile walk to work without donning his entire wardrobe of ski attire, it was a perfect autumn day to detour to the 1369 Coffeehouse for a little pre-work refreshment.  While walking down the 1-block long Temple Street in Central Square, The Shoegazer spied something crumpled on the ground near a delivery truck – a $1 bill, that had just been stepped over by another pedestrian.  Just goes to show what you’re missing out on by not looking down.

Location: This dollar was found crumpled up on a brick sidewalk along Temple Street, a one-block street that runs from Mass Ave to Bishop Allen Drive.

Source: The dollar was found near an illegally parked-half on the sidewalk delivery box truck – it’s quite possible this wrinkled dollar was in the pocket of the truck’s driver, who was not on the scene.  Incidentally, the fine for a no stopping violation in Cambridge is $30, so losing a single dollar probably seems like a pretty good deal – so long as the meter maid didn’t pass by 2 minutes after The Shoegazer.

Destination: This dollar spent the least time in the possession of The Shoegazer as any he’s found yet.  It would be nice to say the dollar was held onto and spent at the Bishop Allen/Throw Me The Statue show at the Middle East downstairs on 10/27, but the fact is this dollar was spent less than 5 minutes later around the corner at the 1369 Coffeehouse, where The Shoegazer’s mocha slide was $1 cheaper as a result.
