8-14-08 For those still paying attention

I found a penny on the subway today, and tried to pick it up while the train was coming to a stop in the station, which may have been a bad idea. Imagine, if you will: me, bent over with my natural-born ass sticking way up in the air, knees bent while I try to maintain some balance, teetering on the verge of total disaster. It must have been quite a sight, and I laughed out loud at myself to preempt any criticisms my fellow passengers might have been thinking as they observed my antics.

Also, never pick up a fortune-cookie fortune that you find just lying on the ground, because you never know what kind of day you might end up having if you take somebody's discarded fortune.

Hi I'm new and know your blogs from Gretchen Rubin's blog. I particularly heart this entry, and I'm laughing and contemplating at the same time! It's true - a friend of mine told me a similar story about how it isn't really good to pick up things left on the street or any random place. Apparently it's bad luck, she says. =) I'll be dropping by.
