Fainjin and I were walking along the street when I spotted some money on the ground.
“Quick, Fainjin, pick it up!” I urged. “You can keep that.”
He regarded “his” find with awe. “Wow! Twenty dollars!”
“Um,” I grinned as he held up the little silver coin, “no, twenty cents.”
“Cents! Cool! That’s my first cents, eh Mum?”
He was just so happy to have a little extra money for his piggy bank. He held it safe and warm in his hand for the rest of the afternoon until we got home.
