When I hear the word coin, my first thought is, „It rhymes with moin.“ It’s a Northern German greeting meaning hello (or hi to some 🙂 ), often used doubly as in the subject line. As usual, Wikipedia has a lot to tell about moin, even in English.
My second thought is a recent blogpost about a coin from Judy’s lifelessons, So Strange, So Strange!
Which reminds me I have two, no, three friends who suffer severely from decidophobia, a term coined in 1973, although it must have existed from the very beginning. I can imagine Adam and Eve wondering whether or not they should pick the forbidden fruit.
Anyway, my indecisive friends are never able to make up their minds, and at the end I always tell them to toss a coin. More often than not that’s not a good solution, because they’d fare much better with a 5-sided coin each… Let’s call it pentacoin!
This is my entry for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday hosted by Linda G. Hill. Until today I only associated this term with Virginia Woolf. However, one lives and learns and streams…
Thank you for visiting! And thanks to Linda.
