    Quite Literally.

    Seriously, I gave my kid bother a penny for his thoughts. And then I paid him 5 bucks to shut the hell up.

    ....A long-distance friend who lives a few states away.  I hadn't heard from her in a while, so deposited one cent into her Paypal account, via a site that sells her art.  :^ )  It worked!
