Coinage

I found myself on the losing end of an election bet. Hoping to quell the spirits of a cow-orker very excited by the Palin pick, I had wagered a dollar that she wouldn't even be on the ticket come election day. And as I paid up, I joked with the cow-orker that he probably shouldn't accept my money, as that's really just spreadin' the wealth around. (He took the dollar anyway.)

Today, however, I realized what I should have done. I should have assembled four quarters or ten dimes or some other collection of coins totalling one US dollar and delivered it quipping, "This, my friend, is change you can believe in."

Oh well.

cow-orker! Is that a new kind of derivational suffix?

As far as I know, it's of Unfogged coinage. Oh, silly them.

It is far older than unfogged.

It might, young Stanley, even be older than you.
