White Rabbits

When I was a child, my mother (who is from England) told me I'd have good luck if I the first words I uttered "white rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits" as my first words on the first day of the month.

I have no idea how many years it's been since I last did it, but I did it this morning. It's not that I haven't thought about it in years, but rather that living with my family didn't allow for leisurely recollection of traditions early in the morning. (More likely first words: "Katie, time to get up.") But being on my own out here in Pasadena, I made it all the way through a shower and past without speaking, and got to the point where I remembered that it was the first of the month.

I think it worked, in someway....
