The Penny Drops

May 19, 2016 | by Aish.com

Shirah and Shmuel Shuster had just finished tucking their kids into bed one evening when they heard sobbing coming from three-year-old Moishie’s room. Rushing to his side, they found him crying hysterically. He had accidentally swallowed a penny and was sure he was going to die. No amount of talking could change his mind.

Desperate to calm him, Shmuel palmed a penny that he happened to have in his pocket and pretended to pull it from Moishie’s ear. Moishie was delighted. In a flash, he snatched it from his father’s hand, swallowed it and demanded cheerfully, "Abba, do it again!"
