So I'm trying to make a few extra bucks without actually working, and I've decided to send in some old jewelry to Cash 4 Gold (please don't be a scam, please, please don't be a scam). I've got an old bracelet from a high school boyfriend that I haven't worn in years, and there are a few other pieces that I'm gonna send in, including an earring mounting with no stone in it (the stone was taken out to make the necklace that Denny had custom made for me for my college graduation). So I've been looking all over the house today for that stupid earring, and guess what? I can't find it.
I looked in every place that jewelry lives at in our house. I even looked in all of the empty jewelry boxes that we kept for some reason even though none of my jewelry is still in them. I did however find a bunch of $2 bills that Denny put in one of the boxes years ago and had forgotten about. I swear, one day I am going to find money hidden in the toilet or a shoebox or somewhere else like that.
Anyway, I called Denny to ask him if he remembered with the earring, and do you know what I did with it? I threw it away. Like, in the trash.
Last winter when I was nesting like a mad woman, I decided that I had no use for such a thing and I THREW IT AWAY. I threw gold away. I know it was probably worth next to nothing anyway, but seriously, who throws gold away?
Apparently, I do.
