I've been using this wallet since the '80s - don't remember exactly when. It's hammered, conformed perfectly to my ass - left cheek - and now a running gag, while being sort of a living art project. An art project to be enjoyed daily by everyone involved.
I have new wallets - never been used. Why ruin all this with a new wallet? Spoil the cheap entertainment when I pull it out to pay for something? No longer have friends ask to actually see "The Wallet"? I think not. Joke with my son, that one day "The Wallet" will be his. This can't be stopped.
Today at Starbucks - Washington State law requires every resident to visit at least once a week - some business dude in a suit spied my wallet, while I was paying for my overpriced ice tea. "Nice wallet" he says - not sure if he was impressed, horrified, or just being sarcastic. I then told him the story of "The Wallet" and how I planned to be buried with it.
I can't stop the joy "The Wallet" provides for family, friends and strangers.
No, it must go on forever....
