A Penny for your Thoughts.

A few days ago Lorelai looked ponderous and so I said to her,

"A penny for your thoughts."

She looked at me curiously and asked what I meant. I briefly explained, and then she went on to tell me what was on her mind.

This morning, after we had dropped Alexandra off at school Lorelai said,

"You still need to give me my penny for my thoughts."

True. So I opened the little coin holder near the dashboard and dug out a penny for her. And then she said,

"Next time, can it be a quarter for my thoughts?"

Smart girl.
