A Moment of Tension
Even though it doesn’t occur very often, there are probably more than a few of you who have accidentally dropped a coin into their beverage before. Some might toss their drink out altogether to retrieve the coin while others would finish the drink and fish it out afterward. For this insanely lucky person, they didn’t have to do either.
After plopping into the drink, this lightweight coin remained afloat. The light weight of the coin did not break the drink’s surface tension, so instead of having to dig a finger into the cup, all they did was pull it out and dry it off. The perfectly good beverage does not go to waste.
