A few weeks ago, I posted a focus about my hesitation towards the new giant fruit which has become so popular as of late. I did see the logic behind that fruit, though, and the possible good that could come from it. Furthermore, I know we live in a “super size” culture – one which emphasizes ever-larger meals, houses, cars.
But giant money? The other day I got change at the supermarket – two nickels and three pennies – and I strained my back carrying it out to the car. And yesterday, I parked my car in a metered spot and I had to ask someone to help me hoist the quarter into the meter!
Am I missing something here? What’s the benefit of these new “super-sized” quarters and nickels and dimes?
