Find a Penny, Pick it up, All Day Long You'll have Good Luck


Is it still fortuitous when said penny falls from your own pocket?

Please excuse this picture as lovingly stolen from Flickr and then graffitied by me, as I have only had coffee and a piece of lemon slice today and the sugar and caffeine are playing havoc with my brain. This is a Botta's Pocket Gopher - I was hoping the picture would organically infer that one should keep such a creature in one's pocket and therefore not lose their change as I did today, but it doesn't appear to have worked well at all. It looks like he's just won the Rat Olympics.

Citius, Altius, Fortius.

I think it counts for, like, half-luck. Better than nothing, right?!

Hilarious. He does rather look like he won the Rat Olympics, but that make it even better!

And I think that if you save a penny from life on the streets (even if it did fall from your own pocket) it must count for something...
