I was surprised by a hit I had earlier today. The bill originated in Las Vegas, but was hit in Fort Lauderdale. At first, I thought that the bill had followed me home. I had spent the last of the Las Vegas-entered bills in the Salt Lake City airport. It wasn’t until about an hour ago that I realized that the hit was on a $5 bill, a few of which I had brought back with me.

I did get two hits in foreign countries. One was in Austria; the other was in El Salvador. Purple hits are hard to come by. I guess having spent bills in several airports recently helped.

In other news, I’m almost three-quarters of the way to six figures. I now have just over 74,000 bills entered, fewer than 2,000 of which have been entered this month. I’d have to get almost 200 bills tomorrow to break 2,000 bills this month. (Not an impossible task, mind you.) I’m $424 shy of $10,000, which would mean that I’d have to get at least some of those bills in fives. (Twos would be nice, though.)

My average dollar value so far this month is $5.24. The reason that I have such a high dollar value with so few bills is that I was entering a lot of twenties and hundreds in Las Vegas. (I don’t think I came across a fifty while there, but I did have cause to enter a ten.) I was aiming for smaller bills for a while, but I realized that there was little point since it was so easy to get change.

It’s getting late and I need to get some sleep. I’ll probably have a few more interesting hits in a few days.
