Waiting For the Penny to Drop

When Paula announced Thursday’s Special was Waiting, I immediately thought, “waiting for the penny to drop.” I could not get rid of the phrase until this morning when the penny finally did drop – with a little help from my wife. She also helped me out with an Irish penny, rendering this picture a bit more ironic, though it is for you to decide if is to be seen politically.

In line with my other pictures from this series, I would just like to add that we have the same phrase in German: “Warten, dass der Groschen fällt,” a Groschen being 10 Pfennig, which was our small change before Pfennige and pennies became cents.

  1. Sometimes they wait a long time, Tobias 🙂 🙂 I love these scenarios of yours. I was looking at one of my son’s books on graphic art the other day and there were some similar ideas. Great stuff!

    1. Thanks, Jo! I always appreciate your visits! And one day I will come up with more walks, I promise. For now, the gumshoe kind of keeps me tied…

  2. You are so clever, Tobias 🙂 I adore this, and no, I don’t see it politically. I am very grateful for your offering.

    1. Thank you, Paula! And thanks to you I added another phrase to my ‘collection,’ one I had not thought of before.
