Lucky Leprechaun Tries to Find Good Luck
Lucky Leprechaun was looking out the kitchen window. He saw his friend, Hoppy Bunny hopping up his laneway. He went to open the front door to let him in but he slipped on a mat by the entrance.
“What happened to your good luck?” said Hoppy, helping Lucky to his feet.
“I think I lost it,” said Lucky. “It is St. Patrick’s Day today, too.”
“That is right,” said Hoppy. “It is St. Patrick’s Day. You really need your luck today of all days.”
“I better go find it,” said Lucky.
Hoppy watched as Lucky looked all over the house for his luck.
“Did you find it?” asked Hoppy, smiling.
“No,” said Lucky. “I can’t find it anywhere. Why are you smiling?”
“Well,” said Hoppy. “You are not going to find it anywhere. Luck is not something you can search for.”
“It isn’t?” asked Lucky.
“No,” said Hoppy. “Luck is something you feel.”
“Are you saying I just have to feel lucky?” asked Lucky.
“For the most part that is correct,” said Hoppy.
“Okay,” said Lucky. “I feel that I would be lucky to go for a walk and not slip on the ice.”
“Let’s check that out,” said Hoppy.
Hoppy knew there was no ice outside but he wanted Lucky to feel lucky again. Lucky and Hoppy did go for a walk and Lucky did not trip on any ice. He was happy the he did feel lucky again.
