Have you ever thrown a nickel in the grass?


Recommended Posts

Having grown up very poor, I've never even thrown pennies away.

Once when I was a kid and it cost a nickel to buy bubble gum, baseball cards, etc. some of my classmates at recess teased me for picking up a penny lying on the ground - it was allegedly beneath us to pick up a measly penny.  Several more pennies were dropped on the ground to see if I'd pick them up. I did and took the teasing. I went across the street to a neighborhood store and bought a pack of baseball cards. I was never teased about picking up pennies again.
