1. What do you do when you see a penny on the ground?
I pick it up. No penny is safe once they've been spotted. Unless of course it belongs to somebody, then I pick it up and give it back to the (careless, I mean poor) owner.
2. If you picked it up, where does it end up?
In a piggy bank or a jar for pennies. It depends really on who in our family found it first.
3. When you think of a penny, what's the first word you come up with?
"Penny!" (Don't you?)
4. Do you prefer shiny or patina'd pennies?
Patina'd; only because I know that there's a possibility that it may be an older penny. Those are cooler, especially the earlier ones- before the Lincoln Memorial
5. Do you collect them?
Yes, and save them and teach with them. My dh is the more avid fan of penny collecting. I go through them more for the older ones.
6. Do you clean them first?
No, not normally, but I did wash my dh's huge collection while I was bored one day waiting for my classes to start. I washed them all with bleach and proceeded to sort them by decades. Did I mention I was bored? (Yes, I did do some laundry, the dishes, made dinner and checked homeworks in between...)
7. What would you rather get for a lucky charm, a penny or a shamrock?
Honestly, a penny because I know its value and I feel lucky to have that extra ".01" spendable cash in my possession, lol!. A shamrock, what would that do but wilt on me. Who needs that?
Alright, it's your turn... Try it and see how many pennies you'll notice after this meme. What do you think inspired this meme, a penny of course!
