What puts the luck in that lucky shirt?
I'm the one in this household who tends to value intuition. I'll admit, logic isn't always my strong suit.
I'm also interested in feng shui, find chakras fascinating, and think that yoga is a nice way to get centered.
My husband, a former sports editor, takes this all in stride with only a few surreptitious eye rolls. "At least one person in this family has logic," he'll grouse, heading off to pay bills and balance the checkbook.
So maybe that's why I thought it was so funny this morning to find him fretting over his Chicago Bears NFC North Champions shirt. The Bears face off against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The winner goes to the Super Bowl.
"I wore it last weekend, and they won," he told me. "So should I wash it? Or will I wash the luck out of it? Or was it the fact that it was clean that made it lucky? I can't decide."
Wait a second. He's the logical one? Hmmm. Anything for a win, I suppose, right?
