I was about to spend this magnificent Scottish five pound note on some bananas when I noticed that someone had taken exception to the portrayal of Scotland’s national poet and Brigadoon, the site of his most famous poem.
This was on the back of one of the bills given to me as change this morning. It makes me sad to think of some kid having to use the money they were saving toward their trip to the magic kingdom for other stuff.
A couple of years ago, I received this 5 dollar bill as change from, I don’t remember where. On it is written, “Daddy give me this. 11/19/05 He said it would be the last he ever give me. I love Daddy.” Recently while scrounging for loose change with which to pay some bills, I lay this bill atop the pile. My daughter asked if times were so tough that I would use this $5. I guess not. At least not until I know the story.
We run a Monday Night club in Riverside called Morefire. I pretty much handle the money side of things and this is one of the 20s we received that showed up in my portion. I was talking to another of the promoters and he said that he got a similar $20 in his roll… too bad he didn’t keep it; I’m curious what further sentiments it may have expressed. Whoever it is that this message was directed to, I can only say that I hope they decided against cutting, burning, or killing themselves… now that it’s been submitted I suppose I can feel comfortable spending it.
