Why I asked about change in wallets

Since my wallet was stolen at the TSA checkpoint, I've been using my late Uncle Pete's wallet. Mom asked me if I wanted it the last time I was in NJ, and I said, "Sure."

She asked, "Are you actually going to use it?"

I said, "Probably." Well, I'm using it now. It's in mint condition, real leather, very nice, and the only thing that was in it was a card-calendar from 1978, the year he died. I left that calendar in the wallet to remind me of him, as he was one of my favorite uncles.

Unfortunately, Uncle Pete's wallet has no change pouch. I tried putting the change in a crevice in one part of it, but the change kept falling out. Right now the change is rustling about in my pants pocket, and I really don't like that. The guys I eat dinner with on Fridays didn't understand what was so abnormal to me about having loose change in my pocket, as they're all used to that and have always made fun of my "pregnant" wallets over the years.

I figure I'll keep using Uncle Pete's wallet for a while, but eventually I want to get one with a change pouch. Since I like carrying my wallet in my pants pocket, I may try to get a men's wallet in the UK that has a change pouch. I have seen some with change pouches in California; I suspect it's because of the large number of immigrants from Asia and India here.
