What Brought This Up?

While going through my wallet earlier this week, a couple of long-forgotten gift cards emerged from the darkness.

It sure is a good thing these were taking up space in my wallet during my trip to Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Oregon. I would have hated to have found myself in a jam without these valueless gift cards.
