Awakenings: Lucky Penny

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

How many times have you found a penny only to check if it is ‘heads up’ before picking it up? If so, that must mean you are superstitious. Superstition has it that you should only pick up a penny that is lying face up. The others…leave them where they lie. I disagree as will be noted later.

  1. Your insights are truly fascinating and treat to read.
    I like the way you combine the best elements of life, the one most ignored.
    Your way with words is amazing.

    I’d be glad to know your thoughts on my short story:

    Remember ‘penny loafers”? I always collected pennies, nickels and dimes as a kid–even now I can’t resist picking up a dropped penny on the sidewalk. Thanks for the memories.

    The copper in pennies is worth more than one cent. I think the government should stop minting them.

    *grin* I’m not superstitious. I’ll pick it up anyway… I just don’t like… broken mirrors, Friday, 13th and I don’t walk underneath ladders… that’s all… oh – yes… and when I see a ghost I always spit to the left. *chuckle*
