We were given a "Chinese Lucky Bamboo" plant.
Our house is for sale. Not being superstitious at all, I jokingly said to my daughter that when the next house "inspection" took place, I would put the Lucky Bamboo in a prominent position. She replied, "Hang the house keys on it", to which I just laughed. But...as the time neared for the prospective house buyers to arrive, I did place the house key (out of sight) on the Lucky Bamboo plant.
The house "lookers" said that they liked our house very much but still had another two houses to inspect. That would have happened by now.
And now a friend has suggested I kiss the Lucky Bamboo plant to ensure the luck stays! What!? Kiss a plant? But, as the people had shown genuine interest in our house and, as I am now wondering about the effect of the key placed in the Lucky Bamboo plant, I think that I must at least 'send' a kiss to the little plant before these people contact us again.
But, I'll keep you posted.
