What’s that, Mommy?

I witnessed a funny thing today. I stopped to pick up carry out at a restaurant on my way home from work. As I waited for my street tacos, I sat at a table a few feet from the cash register. A young mother and her 5 or 6 year old daughter stepped up to order.

Once their order was complete, the mother opened her wallet and took out a crisp $20 bill. The daughter said, “Momma, what’s that?”

Her mother handed it to the cashier and replied, “That’s paper money, sweetheart. You can use it to buy stuff—just like a credit card.”

Her daughter responded, “That’s weird.”

😀 Times, they are a-changin’
