Things I Never Told You

“Things I Never Told You” is the current exhibition at the Women & Their Work art gallery. The portfolio Denise Prince Martin has worked on for the past five years went public on Thursday, May 17 and will be open until June 23.

I went to Quiznos today…

…and to pay for my sandwich combo (which was $8.21, BTW) I handed the cashier a $10 bill. As she quickly punched a button to open the cash drawer, I remembered I had a quarter in my pocket and handed it to her, apologizing for the inconvenience. After looking at my hand, which was extending the quarter, the cashier paused and informed me that she was incapable of figuring out the change necessary since she had already rung up the correct total.

What has become of mental math?
