Alone the costal mountain road on the Yokonami Peninsula, I met a couple who had parked at view point. After a bit of welcomed conversation, I offered them an o-settia. I carry a newly minted roll of nickels with the images Thomas Jefferson and Monticello. Using the app google translate, I explain Thomas Jefferson was America’s third president. His home was named Monticello. I work at Thomas Jefferson’s home. The couple was delighted. I continued walking down the road when I heard shouting. The man was running with outstretched arms holding two beautiful oranges, an o-settia for me. It feels so good to be giving and receiving these daily gifts.
This couple got it. Unfortunately many receivers of my USA nickel think I work at the president’s home, the White House.
