Where is the ability to make a wish when you need it? I have a variety of coins to contribute to the cause, but no flashing, falling, shiny water in which to pitch my bounty.
Not a marble gargoyle spitting, a stone maiden pouring or even a carved young boy peeing into a basin any where near here. Other sources of water, yes but I can’t see turning on the outside faucet and tossing coins at it only to have them all land back in m face. Dealing with any like situation in the house is what led to the washing machine catching repeatedly in the middle of a cycle and refusing to rinse clothes for the Eldest.
Coins, as we found, are not welcome in washing machine innards.
So I will just have to stare at my multiple pots of coins and make a wish – that perhaps they were all in a currently negotiable coinage?
This might help. Another idea would be to just donate the collection to a local synagogue, church, or coin club whose membership would take the time to sort, catalog, and perhaps even exchange coins – some of which might be extremely valuable.
doubt there is anything in there worth much. But I am thinking of a pouch full for every flight since I think a few of the airlines still ask for coins….
If you have any magnetic coins then Dad can make conjuring tricks from them – will buy them from you!
You could bury them and flummox an anthropologist of the future as she wonders how so many coins of different nations ended up in a stash squirreled away!
