If the first words you say on the first of the month are “Rabbit Rabbit,” you’re supposed to have good luck all month long. And if you should happen to forget before you say your first words and end up mumbling something like “coffeeeeeee” or “one more snoooooooooze” instead, you’ve still got a shot. You can reverse the words and make the last thing you say before you fall asleep “tibbar tibbar” and score some good luck points as you drift into dreamland.
That’s my plan for the month. Rabbit Rabbit, a bit of luck, and all my dreams will come true. Because I’ve got big plans for November, just like I’ve got big plans every month…and clearly, I’m going to need a little luck to get this business taken care of.
So Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit.
What are my big plans for November? Well, we should start with the list I couldn’t manage to complete in October, shouldn’t we?
Lose 5 pounds
Paint something (I know I said my Bob Ross costume counts, but let’s be real. It doesn’t.)
Finish 100 Years of Solitude
Write 750 words every day (CREATIVE writing. SEPARATE from this blog. As a part of #NaNoWriMo, to be specific. Along with my friends Jo, Addie, Jamie, Blake, and Stutz. This is happening!)
In addition, I’m planning to
Train for and run the Turkey Trot 5k…in under 35 minutes
Audition for a musical at our local community theatre
Create and stick to an editorial calendar for this blog (Oh yes. Nitty gritty nerdy style. It had to be done.)
What do you think? Are you taking part in #NaNoWriMo this month? Did you make a list of goals that you’re going to need a little luck making good on? And did you SEE that Starbucks brought out the big guns, and by big guns I mean red cups and peppermint mochas?
I can feel it in my bones. November is going to be a great month.
