Our Twenty-Six Cents
Have you ever wondered how the idiom “my two cents” came about? According to the etymology of the phrase, it's of American origin and dates back to the 1920s. Some say because the cost to mail a letter was 2¢, this became a phrase to put a figurative price for offering an unsolicited comment in a humble and self-deprecating way. Oh and we did the inflation calculation—a "two-cent" comment should be worth 26¢ in today’s dollars. You’re welcome.
