SHORT BUT SWEET: Billy was given two euro coins by his grandma on Sunday. One was for the Sunday church collection and the other for an ice cream cone on the way home from church. Billy was flipping both euros in the air on his way to church when one of them slipped from his hand and fell into the storm drain. Billy immediately bowed his head and said, SORRY GOD your euro is gone!
