I Found Five Dollars

Have you ever found five dollars just laying on the street? One day when I was five I found five dollars! I was so happy and excited. It felt so good. It was so cool that I found five dollars.
My mom, Alicia, and I went to the store. We let a black truck cross the street and then we went across the street. When we were on the sidewalk, I looked down on the street and found five dollars.
I ran in the street and picked up the five dollars! My mom said, “I’ll trade you for one dollar.” I said, “NO WAY, are you CRAZY?” But then I saw a soda machine. I traded because you can’t buy a soda with a five dollar bill.
