defaced dollar

There is a barista at Caribou named Josie, and every time I see her, I always tell her that she reminds me of Blink-182. Well today, I said that usual phrase, and she ran out to her car and fetched me this “defaced” dollar bill. She said six or seven years ago she had gotten it as change, and she considered it her lucky dollar. She gave it to me because “This world is such an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me.” And I just think that is so special.


Jane: “Well, I hope you’re right, otherwise I just defaced a 10 million dollar painting.”
