So I have a special display in a corner of my living room dedicated to my visitors; family, friends, classmates of my kids...It's always the same pattern: curiosity attracts them to my wooden showcases. Now the usual question : -what's that ? Answer: -these are old rusty washers that I found buried in my back yard idiot. No just kidding...I want to interest them in coin's collecting, not laugh at their ignorance. Real answer:- these are 2000 years old Roman coins. Then the usual moment of silence ( their brain is processing those informations). The second question: are they real? And then the conversation is started. How do they cost? Can I hold them? Where did you get old Roman coins? For how long are you collecting? Now that I have their attention, it is the perfect time to attack. I open the cover of one of my boxes, and after a faked hesitation, I grab with grace one of my favorite coin and then it's my time to ask a question: ever heard of the Emperor Caligula? Do you know the story about his favorite horse? And this one: Did you know he was killed just after pissing behind a bush? And this poor guy not very lucky too; he was struck by lightning at the height of his glory... Finally, when my guests aren't bored of my stories after 5 minutes, I invite them to choose on coin in a junk bowl I keep in my office. It only remains for me to hope to have conquered another coin's lover in my neighbourhood. Now you tell me please how you try to promote our hobby around you!
