How a penny made me feel like a millionaire

What's a penny worth?

Feels like a millionaire in some circumstances. It's such a contrast when our upbringings gave us such contrasting experiences.

What does it take to make us feel the sense of "satisfaction"? Between the $5 cup of gourmet coffee and the $1 cuppa at the friendly neighbourhood coffeeshop, is there sufficient marginal utility to want pay that $4 difference? Not to mention the difference of 300+ calories (kcal) involved!

Sometimes, there is.  To each his own. Enjoy your cuppa! *slurp*
