Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?

Digging through my purse, all the way to the bottom where the crumbs settle, not just checking the zippered coin part of my wallet (as if my change ever ends up there anyway), the first coin I found was a nickel from 2011. I can actually remember easily what I was doing in 2011, since it’s pretty much what I’m doing now. Loving my family, going to church, working, reading.

There were a couple of semi-notable evenst. We went on vacation to the Outer Banks that year, which was a nice, relaxing week. I got to see some of the filming for the Batman movie they were doing in Pittsburgh. That’s about it.

The second coin I found, by the way was from 1993, which is the year I graduated from high school

What about you? What were you doing that year?
