Candorville (5/3/09)

I’ve heard of people throwing salt over their shoulder while standing in the kitchen or by a dining room table – places where salt would be readily available – but I’ve never heard of anyone doing it while walking down the street. Such an person could be described as hardcore superstitious, but I suppose everyone has their own curious habits such as walking around ladders. I’ve never heard of anyone nuzzling a Buddha belly for luck, but I can see the appeal. Of course, my favorite Chinese restaurant tchotchke is the golden cat statue with its perpetually waving paw. I don’t think they’re particularly lucky, but I do think they’re cool to look at.
