No, what is this?

Not even ten minutes went by from the last conversation before this one occurred.

Tornado E: I LOST MY PENNY!!

The Husband and I: You’ll be fine.

Tornado E: But I lost my penny!

The Husband: Don’t whine.

Me: We’ll find it when we stop.

Tornado E: But I lost it in my seat!  I need it!  Pull over and find it!

Me: We’ll find it when we stop.

Tornado E: But I need it now!

The Husband:  Here!  Here’s a new penny.

Tornado E: Thank you, Daddy!

Blessed silence.  The Husband and I returned to our conversation.

Tornado E: Daddy, what’s this?

The Husband: A penny.

Tornado E: No, Daddy!  What’s on the back of the penny?

The Husband: The Lincoln Memorial.  We told you that already.

Tornado E: But, Daddy, what’s this?

The Husband: The memorial.

Tornado E: No, what’s this?

The Husband: The memorial.

Tornado E: No!  What is this?

The Husband: The memorial!

Me: The Husband, maybe you should just check it and see.

I remembered the year they placed four different backs on the penny.  They also placed shields on the back of this year’s penny.

The Husband: Tornado E, let me see the penny. . . .  A shield?!  Why does it have a shield on the back?

Me: To get more people to collect them out of the system.

The Husband: Here, Tornado E.  It’s a shield.

Tornado E: Now, let’s lay Heads or Shields.
