Writing Prompt: Buffalo Nickel
2006 was a weird year for me. I was invited to go to a wedding of a friend’s daughter. I waited till the last minute hoping I could make some excuse. I did not succeed, I had to travel all the way from Newfoundland to Alberta. The time difference between the provinces is four hours. I started early in the morning and reached Calgary at 10 p.m., I was exhausted . The airline did not provide any food. It was horrible.
I checked into a posh hotel selected by one of my daughters, her theory was why worry, mom is paying. The wedding was okay, there was only one person I knew,it was the bride’s mother. She was busy receiving guests. I was busy staring at all these strangers whom I never saw before or will ever see, once I was home.
The nickel I picked was minted in 2006.
