For Just A Nickel

Photo A.M. Moscoso

I used to beg my Mom for a nickel every single time, non stop when we visited the Curiosity Shop so that I could look into this machine.

I could not imagine what kind of naughty things were in there.

I was desperate, beside myself, frantic even.

I had to know what I would see and it would only cost me a nickel to find out!

Then one day I could imagine all sorts of things.

So you do realize, I never dropped a coin into the slot- that would have spoiled the fun.

Mystery I learned at a very young age, is the sweetest treat life has to offer.

Don’t be silly and try to scarf the lot down in one sitting.
