better than a rabbit's foot.
My family has this tradition, which many have heard before, of saying "rabbit, rabbit rabbit" upon waking on the first day of a new month. If you do, it has to be the very first thing you say... or it doesn't work. I have to say, the months I do indeed say it (and I remind myself the night before for as long as I can remember) I've had good luck. My mother and fristers (friend + sister) remind each other:
Gah, we're so much alike it's crazy. Crazy good.
