The other day John and I were discussing our finances. They are sucking. This is nothing particularly new, we have never been known for our stellar ability to earn and save money. However. Shit is going down, and well, the finances, they are suffering. So here's a little conversation we had the other morning:
me: maybe I should roll some change, you know, because we probably have like eleventy-seven dollars in pennies lying around here.
him: hmmmm...good idea!
me: yeah, we could maybe use it to buy presents!
him: haha we could!
me: or we could just give rolled change to people for holiday gifts and say "here, knock yourself out"
him: we could put it in socks! and say, "no, really knock yourself out!"
This caused me to laugh for like 10 minutes with tears and near loss of bladder control. Then, later on during the day if I happened to think about this conversation again I had another laughing fit. And then, in karate, when the instructor said something like "you can find weapons anywhere"? I thought of change socks.
For the record? We are probably not buying gifts with change. Nor are we giving change as gifts. Socks though? Are a possibility.
