My cousin and I were convinced that his neighbour’s house has diamonds in the garden. We found a bunch of shiny diamond shaped things in their yard scattered in random places.
We used to dig up the dirt hoping no one would notice to find more of these diamonds. I think we found 10 and we split them in half. We would come back again and again looking for them.
We made a promise not to tell any other kids or our parents about them.
One day my mom found one of my ‘diamonds’ in the pocket of my trousers and asked me if she should throw it. I was shocked!!! Why would she throw away an expensive diamond??
Turns out, they were glass teardrop pieces of an old chandelier they threw away. I was so disappointed because we even planned to buy a Lamborghini with the money.
