This is unlike any other living on the edge story you are likely to read. It does not involve living in the fast lane, going outside your comfort zone, or even starting anything new.
It’s a heads or tails kind of story. You flip a coin: heads you do it one way and tails you do it another. One time I was trying to decide what to have for lunch. Heads would be go out, tails would be eat in. I searched my pants pocket and pulled out a nickel.
I flipped the nickel. It did not land on its head. It did not land on its tail. It landed on its edge. Our old stereo had a plastic lid over the turntable. We had moved and the movers had placed one of their inventory tags on the turntable. When the tag was removed it left a sticky residue which had never been cleaned off. The nickel landed on that residue and did not roll off or fall over.
I have never seen a coin do that and have never heard anyone say that they have had a coin that landed on its edge.
This picture is a recreation of nickel that has landed on its side or edge.
Since the coin could not tell me what to do, I made a sandwich at home and ate it outside. I am not sure that this would have worked with a smaller coin. Any other coins I have ever tossed have either landed on their heads or their tails.
