A Thousand Dollars in a Single Afternoon

"I made a thousand dollars at school today!" Mia announced one fine afternoon this past May.

How does a mom respond to that? 
Like this: "You, um, what?!"

"A thousand dollars," she repeated. "And you know what? It didn't take very long, and it wasn't all that hard, either."

"How... did you..." 
Sheesh, I didn't even know how to finish the question. Time to regroup. "Could I see?"

"Sure! Here. I can make more, if you'd like. Just let me know how much you need."

And off she skipped, leaving me with a fistful of these:

I already knew she was a forgery artist. Now I discover I'm raising a counterfeiter. What's next?
