If you don’t put your two cents in, how can you expect to get any change?
I find the phrase “that’s just my two cents” funny. Throwing it in at the end of a comment is literally a cheap way to blunt the edge of our opinions. False humility aside, it carries some weight. Opinions are a dime a dozen, and the shallow mass-manufactured opinions we unconsciously hold come at a bargain-bottom discount. No thinking required.
I’ve decided to enrich you with something I hope has a little more value. Welcome to Two Cents Richer, a forum for home-brewed craft perspectives on our culture, lifestyle, and politics. This is a place for original opinions made from the raw ingredients of life experience – with a dash of humility and humor to taste. Hopefully, what you find here will probe the depths of your hearts and minds, poking a little fun at all you hold dear and challenging your most cherished assumptions.
So come join the conversation I’ve started. It won’t cost you a penny, and hopefully it will leave you two cents richer.
