lucky quarters

A few months ago my grandfather died. Despite having over a million dollars in real estate and a coin collection worth hundreds of thousands, he wasn’t very generous to me. Being the only grandson and the only descendant of his to have any interests in coin collecting, I though I might get a piece of that coin collection. However, he left me a sack of ordinary post-1965 quarters worth about $125, no silver coins, nothing worth more than face value. Nothing worth keeping at all. Nothing of sentimental value was passed on to me, which was what disappointed me the most. But I’m not bitter, at least not anymore…

Yesterday I said screw it and took that sack of quarters to a casino. It was my first time going to a casino. I figured if I lost it all I could at least make a joke out of it and say I gambled away my inheritance, luckily I won $177 on the slots. So, I managed to more than double my inheritance in less than 10 minutes.

Thanks for the lucky quarters gramps 😉
