The money machine was broken this morning. Who would have thought that saving $1.25 could be so thrilling. My day has been made and I have nothing more to say on the matter, so I'll turn the post over to Richard Tull, who has nothing to say on this matter either, but at least he's always got something to say.

"It was a nice idea, Americans calling everyone sir, addressing everyone--waiters, cabbies, toilet attendants, serial murders--as sir. The consequence was, though, that they made sir sound like Mac or bub or scumbag." (p. 240, Amis, The Information)
