What a Significant Other should know about marrying a Coin Enthusiast. You did it! You finally met someone who made your heart skip a beat and the butterflies flutter! You fell in love with their magnetic personality, sharp wit, and doting affection. You never knew it would be so good! As you are learning more about the person all your dreams were made of, you discover... they are a coin collector. You don’t think twice about it... after all you collect shoes, purses, and random pieces of vintage jewelry... how bad can it be? RIGHT? What did you get yourself into? Your loved one has planned a “fun” date for you. You are very excited because lets be honest, most of the planning is done by you or “What do you want to do?” I don’t know... What do you want to do?” and so forth. He can hardly suppress his excitement when he tells you what is in store.... A COIN SHOW. He wants to take you to a coin show. You are dressed to impress, makeup is on point, your hair got the memo to behave, and your outfit, so very carefully chosen to optimize your curves verses your baby fat you haven’t lost in seven years, is to DIE for. My momma taught me that there isn’t anything worth doing if you don’t do it your best... so Coin Show, here I come. Now I know what you are thinking, “You are with the MAN you love! You should love this to because it is a part of him.” Please understand, I love my Husband very much. He is a wonderful man, who makes me a better person and pushes me to do what makes me happy, even if it is hard. Ya’ll! This was hard. Here are some hard learned truths about coin shows:
I now have a different prospective from that very first coin show in Biloxi.... In the Blue Romper and sky high heels. I looked super cute, people even came to the table just to talk to me... but man was it COLD! I still look my best when we go to shows, but I have on “Comfy heels” and I always have long sleeves close by. My job at Coin Shows is to smile pretty, be nice, which can be a feat for me, and talk to people. When I am behind the table at a coin show and people ask about something my standard issue answer is, “I'm just here to look at, the talent will be right back” I still talk to everyone and I still know nothing about coins, but I have friends there too now and I love the adventure. Not everyone can live with their S.O. and work with them as well. For the most part We make it look good, thankfully his wardrobe has significantly changed for the better too! He loves his job and I love him! Just as I am proud of my husband, he is equally excited to show me off. Ladies, put your big girl panties on, smile pretty, and let him show you off... besides you might even win Best in Show!
