Or blow me a kiss, And that's lucky too!
So it should come as no surprise that many years ago when I was a student, I overheard some of my classmates talking about a good luck phrase to say on the first of each month and quickly adopted the ritual as my own.
I say it on the first of every month without fail. Every single month. Usually I try to speak it aloud before saying anything else.
In the past 23 years, I have only forgotten to say it twice. Not that anything really awful happened when I didn't. (Uhmmm.... knock wood) Truthfully, something bad did occur once despite uttering the phrase in a timely manner. But I justify it by saying that Shit Happens and it could have been worse. Right?
However, as I recall, my classmates mentioned another phrase to be repeated on the second of the month - just in case you forgot on the first but I have never quite remembered it. If you've heard of it - please, share it with me. It might be lucky for the both of us as you know what they say, "A bit of perfume always clings to the hand that gives the rose."
Chim chiminey, Chim chiminey, Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when I shake 'ands with you.
