Viel Gluck

When I was growing up, my mom always pointed out things that were lucky. I’ve decided to compile them for you all so you can keep an eye out for them. You wouldn’t want to be lucky without even knowing it!
-Having a red cardinal fly past your car.
-Noticing that the time is 11:11 or 12:34.
-Standing in a moonbeam.
-Eating an egg with two yolks. (Always really grossed me out)
-Writing your name with a knife in a new jar of peanut butter before scooping it out.
-Getting rockstar parking.
-Finding something that’s been lost.
-Catching a leaf before it’s ever touched the ground.
-Getting really cold water from the faucet…in states where you dare to drink from the faucet.
-A day with blue sky and no clouds. (Not applicable in California and Colorado, where this is, you know, almost every day)
-Watching your odometer roll to a nice even number or a palindrome.
-Having an airplane shadow pass over you.
That’s all I can think of for now. When I was little, I loved getting luck so much that I would flip to a random page near the back of certain notebooks and write “Today’s your lucky day!” as a special treat for myself when I got to that page. I also later started writing that same message on walls of friends and relatives that they didn’t see often, like under a desk or at the bottom of a closet, behind some clothes. I wonder if they’ve found them.
If anyone has any other lucky things, feel free to share. Always good to know when something is lucky.
