This weekend’s New York Times magazine (p11) had a rundown of quirky items you could buy from vending machines around the world:
Gold bars – Abu Dhabi (just how many coins would you need to put in?)
Cupcakes – LA (sold!)
Nail Polish – Paris. Hmm.
Bras – Tokyo. Seriously.
Live Bait – Reading, Pennyslvania. (eek).
Marijuana – Boulder, Colorado.
What would you like to find in a vending machine that would make your day easier? Here’s mine:
- A flask of uber-confidence, to be swigged before a big presentation, a job interview or when you’re about to meet your ex’s new partner.
- The perfect LBD (if it’s not an urban myth).
- The five food groups aka. actual tasty, healthy snacks not dating back to the Clinton administration.
Over to you.
