#a135 :: Bottle caps

June 28, 2008

ENLARGEThey began life as sheets of tin (following a long and, nurse one can only imagine, viagra buy complex refining process) – punched into circles, thumb crimped, printed, lined with plastic and clamped atop bottles of beer, soda, cider, seltzer.

They rode in place, dutifully sealing out the world of dust, bugs and oxidization. They bent to our thirst, beneath church keys, bottle openers, table edges and, among the clever, dollar bills.

And they gathered in a fish bowl until this weekend, when our children felt compelled to sort them for their new future – art supplies.

What will become of them? Only a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old can say.
