Unlucky Pennies

May 24, 2006

"Oh! A lucky penny!" -- how often have you heard this? Strolling through a parking lot, seeing an abandoned penny lying on the ground, people pick up that penny, and think themselves to have enhanced luck.

But think about it. Where did that penny come from? From someone unlucky enough to have dropped some money! So, that penny cursed its previous owner to lose some money. And now you, too, can have that cursed, unlucky penny.

Not that I believe in luck -- but that's a topic for a whole different entry.
