I've always had this aspiration to have a huge glass bottle in my home to use as a piggy bank. So you can imagine how disproportionately thrilled I was to find this gigunda glass bottle in John's grandparents garage:
The conversation was something like this:
Me - "Oh!!! Look at this!! Can we take it?"
Him - "Yeah, I guess."
Me - "Oh, this is so great! I've always wanted a huge glass bottle!"
Him - "Ok"
Me - "We can put all our change in it! It would be the greatest thing ever to happen to us! When I was little my friend Jordan had one, I remember counting the change! We rolled all the money! It was insanely great!!"
Him - "My grandparents filled one with coins and it was so heavy, that when they moved it, it broke"
Me - "Oh... okay, well we better take it anyway, we can put something else in it!!"
Not. I am so putting change in it!
But my plan is to empty it once a year to spend during vacations only.
I thought that was a good compromise - so I can get my change bottle, and we can enjoy the money together, and he can rest calmly knowing that we (literally) won't break the bank.
