Eons ago, I remember hearing on TV (on Nickelodeon, no less) that if the first words you say on the first day of a new month are "rabbit, rabbit" you will have good luck the rest of the month.
Always one to never let a good superstition pass her by (and also always one looking for some good luck) I gave it a try. There were times I even stayed up until midnight just to make sure I didn't talk in my sleep and blow the whole thing.
After a few months of very, VERY scientific experimentation, I concluded that "rabbit, rabbit" was pure baloney. In fact, in my mind it seemed to do the exact opposite, and just give me more bad luck. Believe me. I already have plenty of that all on my lonesome. I certainly don't need any help in that category.
So, here I am, about 20 (gulp) years later, still looking for some good luck. Any tips on your best good luck charm? I could certainly use some this month.
