That’s how long I collected the aluminum cans we used. Well, I finally went to cash ’em in and after 30 minutes in line, in the rain, along with the cities finest salvagers, I hauled in…wait for it…$27. I would have taken some pictures there but I think my iPhone would have been promptly scrapped for its value in metal. Everyone should experience this scene at least once.
Needless to say, all cans go directly in the recycling bin now. But it was worth it for the trip down memory lane; as the cans poured out of the bags I saw almost a decades worth of drinking history and down at the bottom the 8 year old Blatz Light cans still shined. You know, you can actually buy a lot of beer for $27.
