The Sound of Money
I awoke to the sound of money falling on the floor. It was a strange sound, like coins cascading down a staircase. I got out of bed and followed the noise. It was coming from the living room. I found a pile of coins on the floor, and a note next to it.
The note said, “Happy birthday, son. Love, Dad.”
I was confused. It was my birthday, but my dad had passed away years ago. Then I noticed that the coins were all pennies. My dad used to say that pennies were his lucky coins. I smiled, and felt like my dad was with me in that moment.
