Wife M just told me about the “mystery coke machine” on Capitol Hill in Seattle, where you put in 75 cents and you get a random can of soda that is outside of your control/choice. No one know who fills the machine and who collects the money, but it is always stocked and apparently it is a “thing” in Seattle. I searched the Web and there are selfies etc. in front of it, which is placed right in front of a random house (which is across the street from the long-time-but-recently-torn-down funeral home). How cool! Even though I am approaching 50 years of life in Seattle and spent the better part of two years haunting Capitol Hill, I never heard of that before. I love how life is always filled with little surprises like that.
