Old Knives' Tales? This is funny to me, but until last week, it was something I'd only seen in a movie.
I told a friend I got my dad a nice pocket knife for his birthday, and she said I'd have to tell him to give me a coin. I asked why, and she said because if he didn't give me a coin in exchange for the knife, then the knife would cut the relationship.
I am not a superstitious person. In fact, I wish I could be a little more superstitious than I am, but there it is.
Have you heard of this coin exchange custom, or is this just an old knives' tale? Am I being a poopy-headed spoil sport for not playing along?
