I have found fifty-three dollars on my desk. I remember why they're
there: 15-20 years ago, someone whose name I have forgotten gave me a
dollar to help pay for a
and three others then chipped in. Their
four dollars have
littered my various offices since.
One of the three must've had too much to drink, because now that I look closely, I observe that one bill bears a portrait of Ulysses S. Grant and the number 50. Good. $49 is an appropriate fine for a joke as poor as that one. Justice has been served.
