“Happy St. Patrick’s Day,” said Lucky Leprechaun’s friend, Hoppy Bunny.
“What is so happy about it?” asked Lucky. “I don’t feel lucky today.”
“Why not?” asked Hoppy Bunny. “You are a leprechaun. You should feel very lucky today.”
“I just don’t feel it today,” said Lucky. “Nothing has been lucky for me.”
“Here,” said Hoppy, taking a carrot out of his front vest pocket. “Eat this lucky carrot and I guarantee you will have good luck.”
Lucky took the carrot from Hoppy. He examined it thoroughly. He didn’t see anything special about it.
“How is this carrot lucky?” asked Lucky. “It is just a normal carrot.”
“Trust me,” said Hoppy. “Go ahead and eat it.”
Lucky ate the carrot and when he was finished with it, he didn’t feel lucky. He felt exactly the same as he did before eating it.
“I don’t feel lucky,” said Lucky.
“Give it some time,” said Hoppy.
Lucky went outside and it wasn’t long before he spotted a four-leaf clover.
“That carrot was lucky after all,” said Lucky, showing Hoppy the four-leaf clover he found.
“Actually,” said Hoppy. “All carrots are lucky. Carrots have beta carotene in them and beta carotene helps you see better.”
“And because I could see better,” said Lucky. “I was able to see the four-leaf clover.”
“You are correct,” said Hoppy.
“I do have some good luck after all,” said Lucky, happily. “This is a very happy St. Patrick’s Day.”
