Dead Presidents: A Conversation With Luke

It is rare for me to have cash, but I happened to have various bills on me this particular day. (Reference for those unfamiliar with US currency: $5 bill, $10 bill, $20 bill.)

Me: [pointing to the $5] Do you know who this is?
Luke: No.
Me: That is Abraham Lincoln. He was president about 150 years ago.
Luke: President of the United States of America?
Me: That's right. [pointing to the $10] And this is Alexander Hamilton. He was not a president.
Luke: What did he do?
Me: That's difficult to explain, but he was one of the founders of the United States over 200 years ago. [pointing to the $20] And this is President Jackson.
Luke: Michael Jackson was president?

Currently feeling: not quite!


  1. Hee - cute story. I'm still trying to convince Katie that our current president's name isn't "A-Rock-A Rama" LOL

  2. LOL - I love Luke's conversations!!!
