The Treasure Hunt For A Blunder

Last week, news went around the Emerald Isles that several 100-peso bills with a the president's name misspelled.

Instead of "Arroyo", it spelled as "Arrovo".

The misspelled bills are still legal and can be used. However, people here are on a treasure hunt. Since such bills are rare, why use it if you can keep it for several years then sell it at a higher price?

That's what going around my mind when I first heard the news. I immediately checked out my 100-peso bills if there are any "Arrovo" bills, and what do you know. I have one! Yey!

It's apparent that my treasure bill has changed hands several times, and no one seemed to have noticed it.

I told my dad, well practically everyone in the house, about it when he got home. He was like "Really?" and I showed the bill to him to quench his doubting thirst.

He kept it. I told not to show it around his friends and co-worker.

"We'll inherit that to (my little brother) so he'll be rich once he turned 40," I joked.
