Forgive me for I have sinned. I’ve passed very crumpled US dollar bills to vendors.
I’ve told lies to cashiers about my non-existent teens who threw the bills into the wash.
Then, once a week, I’ve rushed to the bank to request the newest, flattest, smoothest dollar bills – of course to fold. Well, no more.
While trolling YouTube, I found videos on how to restore dollar bills with moisture and ironing.
Since the bills are part cotton and linen, ironing them after wetting them a bit really flattens them.
This folded Peacock is an example of a recycled dollar bill from yesterday’s 2$ House.
Hence forth, I will humidify and iron the bills for Origami reuse or return to circulation.
This seems only fair – no more alternative truths.
