In this country “a ton” usually refers to the 100 runs a cricketer might amass in a solid innings of play. Otherwise known as a century. I don’t think I ever made “a ton” in any game other than the backyard ones in which there was lots of cheating, reduced wickets, and a players ability to influence the umpire’s decision. Especially if the umpire was a little brother. A random blog here to do nothing except record 100 blogs. And in so doing defer to something Chinese which reflects one hundred as well, in this case one of the numerous types of silver coins the Chinese government (and Chinese copycats) issue each year. See, I said it was random.
