Tis the first day of March – hope the first thing you said when you got out of bed this morning was something to do with rabbits! According to superstitious law a person should say or repeat the word “rabbit” or “rabbits”, or “white rabbits”, or some combination of these elements out loud upon waking on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month.
Huh! Now I know where I’ve been going wrong. I thought you only had to say it on the first day of March. I didn’t know you needed to say it every bloomin’ month. Maybe that’s why I’ve not been having much luck of late. Mind you according to Wikipedia this is also to be accompanied by a pinch and a punch. The victim can then say ‘A flick and a kick for being so quick!’ Well, I’m glad I didn’t bother. I would have been black and blue by now. But being of a superstitious bent I’ll do it cyber style, just in case.
White rabbit, a pinch and a punch, a flick and a kick – there it’s done and no one, least of all me, gets hurts this way and hopefully I’ll win the lottery.
If you are an old hippy like me or are a fan of Jefferson Airplane you may well remember (or knowing the sixties maybe not!) the lyrics to White rabbits.
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall
Those words could well be rewritten about our HIV meds
One pill gives you lippo and one pill makes you thin and some the doctor gives you make you throw up in the bin go ask Alice……………..
which leads directly to another classic golden oldie when it’s sung in a pub in Ireland with the help of a few Guinnesses…….. Alice? Alice? who the feck is Alice?
Sure it’s dammed if I know.
