So I’m in the elevator of my building the other day with a woman whose parents live on my floor. I ask her what she did for Mother’s Day.
“Oh, I just got back from my grandmother’s. She lives down in Spanish Harlem.”
“I gave her two rolls of quarters.”
“…For the laundry?”
“The slot machines?”
“Yup, she’s going in a few weeks. I get her two rolls of quarters for every holiday, Christmas, Easter, her birthday. It’s the only thing she wants.”
