One of my favorite guys has long since been Abraham Lincoln. From his character to his stature he has always interested me. An added bonus… my boyfriend grew up 6 miles from where young Abe was hanging out, teaching himself to read. And there is that uncanny height thing too – so it’s kinda like I have my own version, not that I’m bragging.
But, I digress, the point of this is not to talk about my Abe-esque man friend. No no no, this post is meant to boast about my fiscal responsibility and crafty prowess.
I saved a ton of pennies, so many in fact, that I lost track and plum stopped counting. I set them in the Fort Knox of all tupperwares and let them oxidize. Penny-rich and feelin’ crafty, I painstakenly affixed them one by one onto a freshly painted TV tray.
All 342 of them… then I ran out of coin. Flat broke in the penny department. I need 162 more pennies to finish the project, so if anyone is in dyer need of seeing the finished masterpiece, just send me a message and $1.62…
I will leave a dab of advice for anyone with the huburis to attemp such a feat… measure your surface and divide by a penny’s circumference (3\4 in).
H x W ÷ Abe = Not running out of money
And some from Ol’ Abe…
“Most folks are just as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
Have a happy day!
