LJ Idol week 22: token

Among the change in my wallet is a token from the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.  It's close to a nickel in size and similar in color to a penny. I’ve had it since 2005 despite the fact that I live on the opposite coast so the thing has no practical use. I’m amazed that I haven’t ever accidentally spent it. I didn’t set out to get a keepsake, I had bought several tokens for my dad and I that weekend and one just didn’t get spent. But I like it. It reminds me of that weekend in Boston, watching my mother run the marathon.

Mom set herself several goals for the year she would be 50...Collapse )
