George Washington

Tristan came up to me with a wrinkled dollar bill. He held it in two hands and stared at the man in the medallion in the middle.

Finally, he asked, "Who is this man on the dollar?"

I said, "That's George Washington."

He asked, "Was he our first president?"

"Yes, he was."

His lip turned down in a sad face and he continued to stare at the picture.

"Why are you sad," I asked.

"Because he died.  I really miss him."


  1. AWWWWWWWWWWWW....gotta love Tristan!

  2. I miss him too. And (wierdly) Coolidge.

  3. Okay, I have to ask... why Coolidge?

  4. I burst out laughing at this...was I wrong...because I've missed George too, but it was because there weren't enought of those little pieces of paper with his portrait around. :)


Tell me what's on your mind!
