NaBloWriMo 3 - (lucky objects)

Specifically - Many people have lucky socks or shirts or stones or pens.  Is there an object you own that you consider lucky?  If so, why?

Not really.  It seems a bit unfair on all the objects not considered lucky.  Mind you,  I still try to alternate which foot gets the shoe or sock on first in case the other gets offended.  Admittedly, this is a hangover from my childhood, but I hate the thought of upsetting my shoes.  Does that even make sense?

Moving right along - I don't have lucky objects, but I do have a sort of proprietorial feel for some mugs.  If there is a choice, I will gravitate to the same three or four.  Choice is not a given.  My family are notorious for taking mugs upstairs and only bringing them down when new lifeforms have evolved inside them.  I think they may be quietly conducting some kind of genetic experiment without telling me.  One morning, I'll wake up and find a nicely made zombie in the kitchen making a cup of coffee with husband and son looking proudly on.  "Surprise!"


  1. I have to admit that I've never worried about upsetting my shoes.

    I tend to have proprietorial feelings for pens. My significant other and co-workers have learned not to touch a pen that I may be using.

  2. Pens! Yes, pens. And coffee cups. And genetic experiments, but please don't tell my love (I'm trying to make a maid, but it's not going well).

    Love this! Now, I must try to figure out how to follow...

  3. I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one with that problem :)

    My quiet attempts at building a housekeeper always end in failure. Could it be that ancient pizza crust isn't the right material?
