You know you owned one
Yesterday when I was talking to Mel on the phone and she was packing to head to NC for an interview, I jokingly asked her if she had packed her lucky rabbit's foot to put in her pocket so she could stroke it during the interview. After we laughed at the thought for a little bit, we wondered...What ever happened to the lucky rabbit's foot? and Who ever thought that was a good idea?
The idea of a rabbit's foot on a keychain is just repulsive, but I definitely owned one. They were everywhere and in every possible color. I remember them being sold at Santa's secret shop at school where you could go to buy cheap presents for your parents for Christmas. I would like to give Oscar's to the millions of parents that pretended to enjoy opening an obnoxiously dyed rabbit's foot keychain from their kid for Christmas and acted excited.
I am sure that the disposal of lucky rabbit's feet is directly related to the landfill overflow problem plaguing the US today.
