Something weird....

I have started putting pennies all around my office space. I work in a cube so I was going to say desk but....

I just kind of realized I have been doing it too. Today was definitely on purpose! I stuck about 8 in my pen holder. There are some that have lived in the little groove of a file hanging system on my desk. There are more in a little desk organizer behind me and then in several of my drawers are pennies.

I guess the really weird part is I was thinking, what if I change jobs (or get fired for blogging at work), and someone comes into my desk and finds all these pennies, what might they think?

So of course then I am just laughing at myself for thinking what this person's reaction might be. Seriously though, they are everywhere.... and now it is going to become a game with me! Yeah, I'm weird like that, I just don't let everyone see it!

Carefull! I pick up pennies/change. It's a game the kids and I played when they were small, see who could find the most on outings. When the jar was full they's cash it in for a treat. Times have changed. When my grandson see's money on the ground he reminds me of how it has GERMS.

It is only weird if someone sees you doing it. :) Like asking to borrow a screwdriver so you can put some in your monitor's case. :)

That's not crazy. One of my friends collects lucky dimes (?) and reguses to spend them. They are EVERYWHERE. When Hailey was born she gave her a big box full of them but she's not allowed to spend them.

That's not crazy. You never know when you might have to use them in an emergency! LOL I have two of those little plastic bank pouches in my study - one for 5p pieces and one for 2p and 1p pieces. The rule is that they have to be picked up from the floor or out of the car. I'm aiming to see how much money we've 'dropped' as a family at the end of the year.

Nuts? Yep,
