Oink oink oink… oink oink… oink oink oink! Oink oink… oink oink OINK!!! *Ahem* (Turns on pig-to-human translator machine).
There we go! Hi guys! It’s me, Goldie – the piggy bank you’re staring at right now! How are you? Are you having a good day?
Me, well, I could be better…
My daddy – who you all call “J. Money” – has recently informed me that it’s time to find a new place now that I’ve turned 18 and am officially an adult. (I know it doesn’t look it at 5 inches high, but we piggy banks don’t grow that big.) He is always saying so many nice things about, you guys, so I figured – why not start my search here?
Daddy agreed, and so here we are :) And I promise you that I, too, am also the best! I am really good at keeping secrets and other goodies in my belly, and I’m even better at reminding you about all those dreams you’re working so hard to accomplish. And I don’t even require any maintenance!
I asked daddy who his favorites were so I could try and wiggle my way over there, but he said he loved you all equally (and then laughed a little?), and urged me to put out an application instead.
So here it is below. Covering the three things I find really important in a family: aspirations, location, and good ol’ fashion smarts. I can’t wait to read your answers!!!
Application to Bring Me, Goldie, Home:
- What are you saving for right now?
- Where would you put me in your house?
- How much money do I have inside of me? (You get to keep it all if you win me!)
Answer these questions in the comments below, and daddy and I will review them together and figure out who we think would be the perfect match. Then I get to be bubble wrapped and go on a plane ride! I can barely contain my oinks!
And don’t worry… Daddy says he’ll come check on me every now and then too, but only if the new family has “beer” waiting for him, whatever that means. I sure am going to miss him, but it’s time to go out and see the world! I can’t wait to meet you, new family!
UPDATE: Thank you for all your wonderful essays and inviting me into your worlds, everybody! It was so exciting to think of all the nice and loving places I would be traveling to :) But alas we could only pick one place to visit here, and that place I will be living the next stage of my life in will be Germany – woah!!!! I’ll be moving in with Mario and his mother there as he works on building his real estate empire at 21 years old (what a smart guy!) and I cannot wait to learn all about a new culture, and especially wear my sunglasses he promised me so I can look outside his window. Wish me luck everybody!! We’ll send you a picture to let you know we arrived safely! :)
(Oh, and daddy tells me that the $$$ inside of my belly clocked in at $11.76 and that you all sure are some big wishers, oink oink…)
UPDATE #2: Got a message from Goldie this morning – looks like she made it safely to Germany :)
Hello Daddy! I just arrived (although the travel was quite exhausting). It’s quite warm here and I’ve got so many coins to eat! Oh and the sun is also shining so bright as you can see in the photo which we attached. I hope you’re fine and I’m already looking forward to read more articles from you :D
PS: Daddy says there’s both bills and coins inside of me, and I’m about 5 inches all around in case you need help with answer #3.
