Lucky Charms

I've never been a big believer in lucky charms.

As a kid my mum had a white rabbit foot brooch.

I'm not exaggerating when I say it completely traumatised me.

We were after all big rabbit owners as kids.

She ensured me it was lucky. I didn't and still don't believe her.

How lucky could that foot really be? The poor flaming rabbit got murdered and had it's foot chopped off and turned into a truly hideous brooch.

It certainly wasn't lucky for the poor innocent rabbit.

Oh and mum if you're reading this I honestly don't want it when you leave this mortal coil thank you very much.

Along the same lines I never understood the hoarding of horseshoes, wishbones (that's part of a chicken carcass people), endless searching for Four leaf clovers and lucky pennies.

I was always of the opinion that in life you make your own luck.

But finally a lucky charm I can get on board with, fashionably created in Milan.
Yep that's right folks.

Over at AC Milan they're giving David Beckham's backside a good old squeeze for luck.

Turns out that since his arrival on loan they haven't lost a single match.

If only Milan were closer and it wouldn't result in a restraining order.

Nice. Trade him for Luke Wilson and I'd be all over that:)

No trade for me-he's hot.

And we have not just one,but 2 wishbones drying in our pantry as we speak. My girls LOVE to pull them apart. :)
Just to let you know...and maybe make you gag.

Susan said...

I heard he's leaving Los Angeles to play for Milan again... I lost my rabbits foot, that's why he's leaving! It's all my fault ;-)

LadyFi said...

LOL! I totally agree with you about the rabbit's foot - how gross are those brooches!

Oh - how I wish I were Beckham - or at least, his butt!

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

I don't believe in lucky charms either but I would definitely give that a squeeze for good measure!

TravAndToni said...

Emma sent me too :)

Oh, David's bum creates a conundrum: If you squeeze his bum to get lucky, you already are lucky, therefore you don't need to give him a tweek, and you have to be pre-lucky to have a chance to get lucky.

Oh well. I'd be willing to live in constant confusion about the state of my luck. Bring on his backside! For science... of course ;)
