A man stopped me
on the street, and
asked me; “Sir,
could you change
a ten?” “I sure
can.” I took out
a black felt tip
pen, and put on
a mustache on
Hamilton’s face.
“Here you go.”
He said, “I wanted
to know if you had
change for a $10.00
bill, not deface it.”
“Oh” I say to the
man. Silly me.
Then he called
me an asshole.
“Yup” I told
him, and have
been called
Fictional short story.
