Blogging 365, Day 55: Good Luck

After yesterday’s bike ride through Chinatown and beyond, I decided to do a little shopping for everybody. I bought some incense for myself and knick-knacks for Ann and Anthony.

While I was walking back to pick up my bike from the corral, I came across the coin fountain where everybody seems to thrown their coins with reckless abandon in the hopes that it will land safely in one of the many bowls with labels such as Luck, Health, Serenity, etc.

I tried for Serenity several times and never quite got there – literally and figuratively.

Then with one dime left I decided to go for this one:

Chinatown Firecracker Bike Ride 048

I tossed the time in the direction of the bowl.

It landed right in there from more of an odd angle shown here.

The guy next to me was amazed at the feat and told me that a penny was a small investment for such good fortune.

“It was a dime,” I said. “You gotta spend money to make money!”

We both laughed and parted ways.

Strangely enough, our tax return had been direct-deposited into our account that same day.

I’m not saying it has anything to do with this but hey…it’s nice to think about what may be in store for us 🙂
