Sure. I had aaaaaall weekend to get over to my nearest Coinstar kiosk, but of course I held off until after it started raining this afternoon to do the deed and finally get that answer we’ve all been waiting for since Thursday’s post, in which I invited all readers to take a stab at the dollar amount of the 14 pounds of leftover change long accumulated in a half-gallon glass jug and whose time had finally come to be put back into circulation.
And that answer, which totally exceeded my paltry expectations of being in the mid-$20s, is… Eighty-Seven Dollars and Eighty-Four Cents! Dude!!
And the top three guessers who got the closest without going over are:
- Third Place (nice!): Shannon – $75
- Second Place (whoa!) Jamie – $84.13
- First Place (holy fucking shit!): isawacoyote – $87.31
Honorable mentions go to LA Metblogs Capt. Lucinda Michele with $67.52, and fellow Armed Librarian, my man Bromike with an ominous $66.6.
As promised, I’ve dipped into my semi-eclectic collection of stickers and posted a variety available for review here on Flickr. If the glory of being so triumphantly and clairvoyantly in the top three is not enough, and you see one or several that you like email me at wildbell at gmail dot com with a mailing address and I’ll get them right over to ya.
Thanks to everyone who played!
