  1. I thought this riddle would be an easy one, but it wasn’t! I tried holding $5 bills in front of a mirror, and my reflection kept taking them away! So I thought about using a photocopying machine. That didn’t work, either. Lincoln kept closing his eyes—I think the flash of light was too strong for him! I decided to split a bill in half, but my scissors broke as I tried to cut through the marble stairs of the Lincoln Memorial. I then realized that I could possibly recoup my losses by sending a $5 bill off to North Korea—perhaps Kim Jong-un would agree to print me me up a batch of identical bills. Unfortunately, I was informed that the presses there don’t bother with small denominations. I was about to throw in the towel when it occurred to me that I could simply pray for help. Full of hope, I drove to the nearest church, fell to my knees, and implored Saint Genevieve, my patron saint, to grant me a favor by consulting with the Almighty—perhaps He would have pity on me? She asked me if I meant the Almighty Dollar, and I said, “No! I’m in a church, aren’t I?” Saint Genevieve wasn’t so sure that actually made a difference, but she nonetheless agreed to act in my behalf. However, she requested that, as a show of faith, I first offer the church a tithe. I asked her if she had change for a $5 bill, and she said no. So that did it! I broke out in tears, and returned home with one last bill in my wallet…. So, Laura, I’ve given up on this riddle. And, by the way, it robbed me of $55. Now I need to pay my internet bill. Can you please send me a check?
