A few months ago I read somewhere (probably on Anil Dash’s site) that the New York MTA was doing away with subway tokens. I’ve always wanted to visit NYC, and it made me sad to think that by the time I finally got there, tokens would be a thing of the past. A shout for help to Andrea and she promised to send me two tokens – one for me and one for Jason.
She mailed them back in May, but I have been so busy I keep forgetting to check my post office box. This morning I wanted to drop off my check to my insurance agent, and the post office is just around the corner, so I finally stopped. Not only did she send me a regular token, she sent me this really cool set of tokens with coins from 1953, 1970, 1980, 1986 and 1995. It rocks! I’m so giddy I can’t even put in to words how much this excites me – I love it! Thank you *so* much, Andrea! I truly appreciate it.
