The lady who sold it me wrapped up in decorative paper and placed it in a fancy box. She told me that rubbing his shiny tummy will bring forth luck. Are people really lucky, or do we happen to experience life changing events and call it luck. I believe luck is granted by the way we live. For example, a homeless guy who hasn't eaten for 2 days stumbles upon a generous guy waking down the street and happens to spot him a couple of bucks. Luck or coincidence? you be the judge.
I think luck has to do with maturity. Excuse me for my weird comparison.
Some elderly people say "young people are immature." I beg to differ.
I will end by saying this-
Maturity has more to with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've seen. So you old people, we young people are not all immature.
