Virtually penniless

Debby, a woman from work got me started with a quarter. I mentioned that I was going downtown to be homeless after work, so she jokingly gave me a quarter to get me started. I got on a train with a red plastic cup in my hand, with Debby’s quarter in it. I didn’t really know how to get started, where I would go, or what I would do.
