The Even-ing of Steven Hits Val's COIN Collection

I've had a good run over the past few weeks, but Even Steven apparently thinks that I shouldn't rake in a big coin haul on a regular basis. Of course, I also had to skip two days of coin-hunting due to my fever and sickness. So who knows, maybe SOMEBODY found a fortune while I was out of commission.

Anyhoo... the week was off to a good start on SATURDAY, March 18, when I spied a special treasure at the Liquor Store.

See it? Between the feet of the grandma and granddaugher ahead of me? The mom had already made her purchase and stepped over by the door. That little girl was perhaps the most annoying child on the earth's face. She wasn't a bad child. Just annoying. She bounced around from side to side, poking at grandma, trying to make conversation. Not begging or anything. Just a bored kid, wanting attention. Her grandma sounded quite exasperated every time she told her to calm down. Who would expect such behavior from a child in a liquor store waiting for the family matriarchs to buy their liquor and cigarettes? My biggest complaint with this kid is that she kept blocking my photo of that penny!!! 

It was a heads-up 2021 penny. Little did I know it would be my lone find of the week.

That's 1 COIN this week, for 1 CENT towards Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune!

  1. MY biggest complaint with that kid is the low-slung jeans showing her butt crack at such a young age. And she's wearing thong underwear.

    1. Welp! I didn't go over the photo with a fine-tooth comb. I was looking at the penny to see if it was visible, and the skin being the same color as the sweater made it slip past my recovering-fever eyes.

    1. You can put away your comb now, I fixed it. I think. Didn't blow it up to a mural size...

  3. Aww, you gave her purple undies :)

    1. That was a quick patch-up job. Had I noticed it before, and felt better, I would have taken time to give her a belt that covered up that area. Like when I blur out people's faces, or license plates.

      It's not the child's fault. She can't drive herself to the store to buy proper underclothes, or any clothes. She has to wear what her providers give her.

  4. Oh no, you descibed my youngest child, Adrienne!! She would not stop talking!! She even talks in her sleep!!

    1. My sister the ex-mayor's wife is like that. She once woke me while down in the kitchen with Mom, bellowing, "Joan of Arc CHILI BEANS???" Not sure what was going on there, but we did NOT have chili that day.
