Robin’s 2¢:
Jack walked into his house breathless and exhausted.
“What happened?” his wife asked.
“It’s a great idea I had,” he gasped, smiling proudly. “I ran all the way home behind the bus and saved myself 50 cents.”
His wife frowned. “That’s just like you, Jack, always thinking small,” she said, shaking her head disapprovingly.
“Why couldn’t you have run behind a taxi and saved yourself six dollars?”
