I am making a change in my life.
For 60 years I have been wearing denim jeans. In all that time when I make a purchase and have been given change, I have just slipped the coins into one of the big pockets in the front of the pants. Then later when I buy something else and need the coins, I have to dig deep, passed the handkerchief, past the car keys, down to the bottom of the big pocket, then clutching the coins with my fingers, I have to pull the money out, passed the car keys, past the handkerchief, so that I can use them.
The other day, as I was putting on my jeans I happened to notice the small change pocket that has been there for the past 60 years. I thought to myself, “I ought to start using that little pocket for my change instead of putting it buried deep in the big pocket. It would make using the coins a whole lot easier.”
So that is how I am going to change my life. I hope I can overcome the life time habit of putting the coins into the big pocket of my jeans. Hopefully, this old dog can learn a new trick.
