One of your favourite writers has a new book out. You can not resist picking it up while you are at the bookstore. But, you don’t have quite enough cash. Sadly, you left your wallet and all your plastic at home when you changes purses. Sure, you could come another day when you have your bank card. But, the book is right there. You’ve got no plans for the night and it would be go great to get all warm and comfortable in bed with a new book by a really good writer.
You only need a bit more than a dollar. Surely you can think of a way to get that. It’s a busy store. Lots of people to ask for a little spare change. Or you could come up with some kind of performance art. What would you do?
