Whew I’m *tired*. I worked at the busiest cash register today serving a never-ending stream of people. The museum’s always busy on a Saturday, but because it rained last night and continued most of the day with heavy downpours, which flooded the streets, all those people who normally go to the beach on the weekend, came to see the art instead.
Even if a visitor buys one postcard it still has to be rung up, the money exchanged – many people who buy one postcard pay with a $100 bill – and the receipt together with the purchases placed in a bag.
I served a couple from Australia who had just arrived in the States, and like most tourists weren’t sure of our money. Their purchase came to $14,07. The woman gave me a credit card, and her husband carefully counted out the seven cents. We all laughed.
Michael Bolton was spotted in the galleries.
People often give me their cards. Shadi who runs The Kismet Inn in Maine gave me one this afternoon. Her B and B looks lovely
