Listening to: Imma be (Blacked Eyed Peas – y’all)
Thought for the day: “Hope…. Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’…” ― Alfred Tennyson
I’d like to dedicate day 222 to my friend Stephanie Connole. Why you ask? Several years ago, Stephanie introduced me to the significance of the color of panties you wear as you transition to the New Year. Initially, Steph’s undie prophecy only included yellow (wearing yellow undies = a year of prosperity). After some research, however, I’ve discovered that there are other colors with significance. Consider this your New Year pantie guide. If you’re wondering, this is a Brazil, Venezuela and Peru tradition.
YELLOW means a year of prosperity, wealth and success.
RED means a year full of passion and romance.
PINK means a year of luck in love.
WHITE means a year of peace, harmony and happiness.
BLUE means a year of good health.
GREEN means a year of better luck.
So my question is what if you want all of this? How do you wear all of these colors? Last year I devised a plan. PANTIE SCRUNCHIE!!!! I’m doing it again this year. You’re looking at a pink pantie scrunchie. Pretty eh?
Does it work? Who knows? However, last year I reached a life-long goal in my 401K (yellow panties) and had numerous opportunities for love (red panties – though none of it felt right, I can’t blame the panties). So hey………… if you don’t have the apropos undies WalMart is probably still open. Thank me later. Also. Eat your black eyed peas.
