Julia & Casey Selfridge.
Absolut-ly priceless. I first
crossed paths with Casey while I was training for the London Marathon. At that
time, he was a wonderful coach for the Team in Training organization (also
known by the acronym TNT, is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's
endurance sports training program. They provide training for a half
marathon, marathon, triathlon, century bike ride, or a cross-country
ski marathon.) For more info check out http://www.teamintraining.org/
Never look a gift horse in the mouth right? Ha.
After shaking the vodka bottle for what felt like an eternity to
retrieve these little coins, I contemplated whether it would be worthwhile to
clean up broken glass or continue shaking the bottle until every last drop was
out? Fact: the neck of an Absolut bottle
isn’t much bigger than a penny and the bottle can store at least 1230 pennies.
As for the pennies themselves, Casey is quite certain he”scored
the bottle from a new year’s party freshman year in college.” The bottle was filled by or before he
graduated and he never knew what to do with them so they have been a highly
ornate bookend for the better part of the last decade. Casey and his wife (especially) are glad they
have found a new home.
