1. What’s something good that there are thirteen of? What popped right into my head is the phrase "baker's dozen"...you know, when they throw in an extra donut? That is a good thirteen!
2. Have you known any black cats? I had a sweet black cat when I was growing up. His name was Spooky Dee, he was burmese, very loving, and when he would get kneading on you his nose would start to drip. That last thing was kind of gross, but he was an otherwise perfect kitty :-)
|This isn't Spooky, but the resemblence is pretty good. Aw, I miss him!|
4. It seems to me that while people seem to have all kinds of tokens of good luck, such as lucky articles of clothing or lucky rituals or lucky figurines, nobody has a lucky food. What would make a really good good-luck food, and what would seem to be a bad-luck food? This question made me laugh...never thought about food in quite that way. I guess a good good-luck food for me would be Altoids. Mints count as food, right? I can't make a mess with them, they aren't fattening, and they freshen the breath. Nothing wrong with any of that! Bad-luck food...um, let's see....maybe something troublesome to digest, like beans? That could be bad luck, I think :-)
5. Not that any of us believes in luck, but what’s something that happened this week that seems to have been very lucky for you? I feel lucky that my ability to sleep as well as I normally do seems to be returning after an extended hiatus. Whew. I was starting to get really worried, but I think I'm back on track. Lucky!
Please feel free to play along in comments or on your blog. Or don't, but don't be shy about leaving any absolutely unrelated comment. Good luck!
