It's nice to have a washer and dryer in the apartment. It feels adult to not have to horde quarters for laundry day.

Except that the city recently privatized all the meter parking in Chicago and the price for public parking has skyrocketed. Now a quarter only buys you 15 minutes. In some places only 7. I rarely drive somewhere that requires meter parking anymore, but I need to keep a small fortune in quarters in my car, for the few times I do.

So, quarters are back to practically glowing when I see them, they're so important again.
