Yesterday, I went to a meeting in our province's legislative building. It is a huge building I have not been in since I was 8. And since all I remember is the red carpet on the staircase, I was still suitably impressed with the whole thing.
Before the meeting started, I wandered the hallowed halls looking around. I was overwhelmed by the marble floors, expansive walls, majestic arches and giant pillars. I stood on the third floor balcony and looked down to the main floor. As there usually is in political places, journalists milled about and some crowded around people who were sure to be important.
As I looked on the sight, a mischievous thought crossed my mind. I turned to the person standing next to me and asked, "Anyone got a penny?"
