Money Clips and Things:
My paternal grandfather, Papa, gave me this money clip when I graduated high school exactly fifteen years ago (what?! I had to count that out in head!!). I did not use it right away although I always liked it. I used a wallet for a long time, you know the kind that held all the cards and all the pictures. No one has pictures in their wallet anymore, all that stuff is on their phones and social media etc. etc. etc.
One day I pulled the money clip out of my dresser valet (who do I think I am?) and started using it. This meant downsizing what was in my wallet so it could fit into the money clip. It also meant I used that old wallet as a second spot to hold membership cards, insurance cards, and extra stamps (you do that do right?) So, instead of really downsizing I carry two items now, well not actually on me. The old wallet stays in my bag I carry around. I’ve been doing this for a while now. It’s my thing. Do you know who else does this? My Dad.
Slowly you do things like your parents, some are obvious, and some are not. All this got me thinking I can’t wait to get Max a money clip for his high school graduation. He’ll think it’s lame, until he realizes the awesome tradition it carries.
This has been a post that was longer than anticipated and deeper in meaning than I intended. I just really wanted to ask the question, who else carries a money clip? Does this make me a weirdo?
