un quarto di dollaro


Explanation:
concordo con Gianfranco... in Inghilterra (come Gianfranco ben saprà) esistono ancora i contatori per la luce/gas (in casa) che richiedono l'inserimento di monete (in genere una sterlina) per attivarne il funzionamento. Non ho tempo per fare una ricerca... spero solo che la Munro sia un'autrice abbastanza contemporanea e che i sistemi canadesi non siano così dissimili! ... (Paola, siamo in Canada! Dove sei?)
