We do these things. We paint our kids because we painted one another. And it was 14 years ago that this all started. And now we have this tradition, this history. We have these tiny dots of color, these infinitely small moments that have begun to accumulate. These things are pennies.
And they add up.
You just do these things and they all sit together in this big mound.
You realize that coin, that small little dash of bright flickering, it is some rare penny, some Lincoln penny, some SVBD penny that is worth thousands, millions even. It is the most unique and rare penny that anyone has ever seen. It is so much more than just one cent.
You just do these things and you don't know what you have. You don't know what it means. It all adds up while you aren't looking and the mound grows and your wealth increases, and suddenly, 14 years later you find,
you are a millionaire.
