We want your two cents. No, really, we are poor students, and every penny helps. Give us your pocket change. While you’re at it, give us your proverbial two cents also, and tell us what’s eating you, or thrilling you.
Here’s the great thing about the economy of the mind: You give me your two cents. I give you a penny for your thoughts. But, from your point of view, I am giving you my two cents, and you are giving me a penny for my thoughts. The thing is, we both win. If only the real economy worked that way; fewer of us would be eating Ramen noodles.
