I found this penny on the floor of my apartment today.
Uninteresting? I beg to differ.
For one thing, you have to consider that my life has reached a such a high level of boringness (I don’t care if that’s not a word, inventing new ones is the only free kind of fun left!) that anything unusual feels like a party-worth event.
Even if you don’t live in North America, I’m pretty sure that you are aware that finding a penny is considered good luck. And I like that. Like anyone around me, a little luck is something I welcome with open arms. I also collect Freja’s fallen whiskers, and I make wishes when I notice what they call mirror hours (Which is why I now schedule my Quickies at 11h11, and my 1MinFiction Challenges at 1h11).
Do I really think it will bring me good luck? Hmmm… Let’s just say I hope so.
There are two details that made me unexpectedly excited to find said penny on our wooden floor.
- Pennies have been eliminated from Canadian money in 2013. Which means that finding one is very unlikely, unless you’ve made a collection before they went out of circulation.
- Our apartment being a controled environment, any new addition is odd, to say the least.
After finding my new penny, I Googled the meaning it had. One writer said that a lucky penny was a gift from good wishing old sould or angels (if you believe in them), to lift your spirit.
My guardian angel went through a lot of trouble to bring a little lightness to my life.
I believe something good is coming my way.
And you should too.
Look for the silver lining in all the little things.
