A Penny For Your Thoughts

“A penny for your thoughts”. One of those phrases we are all familiar with, but do you know where it came from?

Once upon a time, a Scottish lad and lass were sitting together on a heathery hill in the Highlands of Scotland.

They had been silent for a while, when the lass turned and said to him, “A penny for your thoughts.”

The lad was a bit abashed, but he finally said, “Well, I was thinking how nice it would be if ye’d give me a wee bit of a kiss.”

So she gave him a kiss, two in fact. The first was a quick one, the second a more lingering one.

But after those kisses, he once again lapsed into a pensive mood, which lasted long enough for the lass to ask him, “What are ye thinking now?”

To which the lad grumbled, “Well, I was hoping ye hadn’t forgotten the penny!”
