100-Word True Stories
My husband lost his wedding ring while working in the yard. We looked everywhere for it but decided it was no use to continue searching by hand, so I bought a metal detector. When the machine didn’t seem to be working, I tossed a nickel into the grass. My husband moved toward it with the detector, but nothing happened. I bent down to pick up the nickel and saw his ring about a foot away. I couldn’t believe my luck. I’ll never forget that moment—and I’m going to keep that nickel forever.
