Notes
1. KISS explains this type of clause as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
2. Alternatively, the "speaks" clause can be considered the main clause, and the "said" clause can be explained as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
3. "Saved" and "earned" are verbals (gerundives) that modify their respective "penny."
