One Liner Wednesday March 20


” See a penny, pick it up ; all day long you’ll have good luck. “

I read and heard this adage several times while I was growing up. But I am still not clear what it means exactly.( I don’t remember if it was originally pin or penny).

Does it mean that one should be on the lookout for lost property ? Or does it just mean that finding a coin is a good omen, a sign of good luck ?

What do you think ?

      1. Of course, it is not a belief that this penny and this breath will help. It is rather a superstition, something “for a good day” 🙂
        Do you understand what I mean? It’s not that people believe it.:-)

  1. See a pin and pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck; see a pin and let it lie, bad luck you’ll have all the day.

    It was basically dealing with frugality and thriftiness in small things can be rewarding.
