I've already used one of these machines today. And by the end of the day, I will have probably used one again.
It reminds me that while in Minneapolis last November, a friend commented on how "thick" my wallet appeared. It only appeared so because of the number of membership cards and award cards I was carrying at the time. So, it made me think to take out my wallet this morning, to lay the cards out, to see if I could make a sort of listing poem with a little bit of rhyme to it:
"Your Wallet Would Be Thick Too"
If you had a card for all that you do,
than your wallet would be thick too.
If you had a library card to check out books,
a Great Clips card for managing your looks.
A Home Depot card for when you need wood.
A Starbucks card for coffee that's good.
A membership card for the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
Feeders Supply for the dogs (one of them's part beagle).
My lunch card with scan so I can eat while at school.
A Sears card for that rare time I might need new tools.
Indiana Driver's License so I can drive my car.
A Debit Card--I need gas or I won't go too far.
The most recent school picture of my children.
My Sam's Club membership card should I need paper towels ever again.
Master Card, Visa, American Express--
for what I will need them is anybody's guess.
