Begging for Pennies
Seriously...can I buy one or do I have to beg?
I'm jousting at M Pax's blog. No, I'm not picking up the spear looking thingy and poking knights in the chest. I'm just asking you guys to go on over to Mary's and say this in a comment- by say this, I mean copy and paste the following in a comment or just mention the words that are in bold print:
Lady Margaret and her trusty spear thingy, Bella's Point, says fare-thee-anon!
(Or use those words in any combo to gain me points. No wonder I am so fluffy, right? I joust with words from my comfy chair!)
Now, for the begs and bribes...for all of my huzzah-eers, I will reward you with a chance at showers of ale!**
Begging over...onto the post!
|No more pennies?|
While cleaning out my mom's house* to get it ready for sale, I picked up a pocket full of pennies. They were hiding everywhere- under furniture, in boxes of letters, and in their favorite place- in drawers full of junk. My husband pointed out that pennies may be on the way out.
On the way out?
Yes, on the way out- like no longer minted.
Seriously? How can we do without the penny? I mean if you want to get rid of something, ditch that bulky, awkward, quarter wanna-be nickel. Nobody gives a plug about the nickel, right?
Come on, we all know pennies are from Heaven. If you find a penny and pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck.
Without the penny, how will you make wishes? It's a penny well people! A quarter doesn't get you twenty-five wishes, it gets you less bubble gum. You have to toss a penny to get the wish.
And how will you buy someone's thoughts? I mean a penny for your thoughts is like, a really good bargain. A dime for those same thoughts just shows we have a sad inflation issue.
Stop the change in change!
PROTECT WISHES, THOUGHTS, AND BLESSINGS FROM ABOVE....SAVE THE PENNY!!
*My mom is alive and well and living in Alaska- don't anyone panic.
**By showers of ale, I mean this Amazon gift card valued at $10.00
