7 more years!

Okay...I may officially have the worst luck. When I'm stressed...I love to pick. I'm sure that is too much information but what do I have to loose. I like to see my flaw and pick and it is done best with a magnifying mirror. I have actually coveted those fancy magnifying mirrors because while their main purpose is to see your own flaws...they look pretty as well. I know, I know...this post has therapy session written all over it - but that's not the point. A month ago I finally broke down and finally purchased my own mirror and ran home quickly to feed my unhealthy obsession. I took it out of the package and BAM! It was broken. I didn't break the mirror, but regardless my mirror is broken. And we all know that a broken mirror is 7 years of bad luck. I have never really believed in that theory, but now after everything I have started to wonder.

Last week I took my broken mirror back for an exchange and they were out of stock. But the store ordered one and had it shipped to my house. So maybe my luck had started to change. I just got home, opened the door and there sat a package. I opened it so excited to finally feed my obsession and BAM...you guessed it...7 more years. Now I am looking at 14 years of bad luck. Who has luck like that?

I once saw a mirror at Brookestone that maganified like 50X. Yikes - if it hadn't been over $75.00 for a hand mirror, I would've definitely bought it. You can do some seriously picking with that thing!

I say "Acts of God" (or UPS) don't count towards the whole 7 years of bad luck thing.... that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

(oh..and I pick too...pick..pick..pick..) ;)

Suze - 50X...that would be a great mirror!

Pink - That sounds like my new mantra. BPick, pick, pick. I love that UPS falls under "Acts of God"

I confess, I'm a picker too.

I'm more superstitious about walking under ladders and opening an umbrella in a building. They're silly superstitions, but they do stick in our heads, don't they?
