Cents & Centsibility

Find a penny, pick it up. All the day you’ll have good luck. I’ve collected a lot of pennies, which come in handy for buying tidbits, this and that, odds and ends. Consider me pro-penny.

Some people are anti-penny. They find pennies so useless and annoying, they’ve tossed them in the trash.

But over time, they may see the error of their ways.

I applaud small change. It shows people have come to their cent-ses.



I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. A penny for your thoughts! Penny-wise, pound-foolish! How many more sayings will your readers toss into your collection jar of pennies? Thanks for sending a shiny, coppery one my way!

  2. I am pro-penny too. My father saved jars and jars of pennies, and every so often he would roll them, take them to the bank, and cash them in. Every so often, the bank would ask if he had any to bring in because they appreciated them. It is amazing how they add up. ~nan

  3. The new title is terrific, especially great fun for an admirer of Jane Austen. You have lots of cents’ sense in your treasure bank of literary and verbal awareness.

  4. My “munchkin financial advisor”, who lives down the street, “advised” me very seriously, that “thoughts” are now worth a nickel (5-cents) due to inflation. . .and Canada doesn’t use pennies anymore. Mandy is almost 5. . .:)
