Was John Tyler a President?

john tylerStudent shows me a gold coin from his pocket.

“They gave it to me at the Tiger Mart.”

“Oh yeah,” I say.

“It’s a dollar.” he says.

He turns the coin over then reads it.

“John Tyler,” he says, “who’s John Tyler?”

“I don’t know,” I say.

“Was he a president?”

“I’m terrible at history,” I say.

“Right,” he says, “me too.”

At lunch the only thing I forgot at home was a ceramic bowl to microwave my food, which Bridget cooked.

Shepherd’s Pie tastes great warm and almost-as-great cold.

As I’m eating and scrolling my iPhone 4, I boot Google Currents and the first thing I see is Mental Floss because I was looking at it last.
