One Year of Firsts: Feed 100 Parking Meters

Day 100



    Pleasure is spread through the earth

    In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find.

              ~William Wordsworth, 1806

    100 days of Firsts!!! Whoa! Yeah baby. A hundred days of crazy, eye opening, silly, fascinating new Firsts this year.

    I felt the need to spread the love today. The First Fairy (that would be me) went up Market street  in Philadelphia with a hundred quarters to feed a hundred parking meters.

    I actually got excited when I found a few meters about to expire. It was fun thinking, the meter maid would be foiled again.  The poor car owner spared a ludicrous ticket because some lunatic journalist has a  first project.

    Or not. Maybe I just wasted a bunch of quarters.

    Hey, it was good for me. Don't know if it was good for anyone else. Doesn't matter.

    Happy 100 Firsts Day!
