Cents And Dollars
A foreign exchange student was in the USA for the first time. She was at her first football match and quite fascinated with the noise and the excitement. After the match, she was asked by her host family if she enjoyed the match. She said it was very exciting to watch the well-muscled young men charge about on the field but she didn’t understand why they were all worked up about so little money. The family was surprised by her mention of money. “What money?”, they asked her. “Well she said, I saw them toss a coin the beginning of the match and the whole time the audience and coach were yelling at the players to get the quarter back. Isn’t a quarter 25 cents?”.
