Giveaway: Penny for your thoughts (or, like a whole bunch of them)

Giveaway: Penny for your thoughts (or, like a whole bunch of them)

I began penning this post yesterday, as I was sitting in an airport terminal, waiting for my flight home (you know it’s a quick turnaround when you can check in for your arriving and departing flights at the same time), and I can’t help myself from people watching. I’ve always been something of a “yenta”( as my grandma would have put it )– I love observing from a far and trying to figure out the story going on behind a person’s often paper-thin facade.
