Okay, okay, change really is money. I, personally, never treat it as such; I get it, I throw it on a table or a dresser or in a drawer, and I forget about it. J. actually uses his to purchase things occasionally, but also has accumulated a large change collection. Yesterday he hauled most of it to the bankjust the dimes and quarters, not the near-worthless pennies or the disproportionately large and heavy nickelsand dumped them in the change-to-real-money machine. When I got home, we had the following conversation:
J.: Guess how much money all that change turned out to be worth?So, okay, yeah, it's money. At least if you wait long enough. Maybe in two or three years we'll have collected enough for it to be money again.
