One for sorrow, two for joy...

I m sure you have heard this
"One(birdie) for sorrow, two for joy, three for letter, four for friend."

I heard it at the same time when all of you did. Yes when I was too young.

You mite laugh but it somehow actually worked for me. All these numbers 1,2,3 and 4 have actually done what they stand for not only once or twice but many times and I still am superstitious (if u call this superstition, which I m sure u do).

One thing I noticed when i was 16-17 was that the birdie referred to in this saying is "never alone" (I m dead sure about this). When I first observed it and till date I have never ever seen a birdie alone.

What I mean is that if you do see One (wich signiies bad luck) keep tracking the movement of the bird. It wil surely goto another birdie soon or the other one will come close to it.

However if you do believe in the saying and since you read the passage above you must be wondering that it implies no bad luck at all. Well it is not so, actually there are times like for example I am on a bike or in a car and I see a birdie on the way, I just cant stop and wait for the second one. Actually I may actually do so if I am going 4 something important and alone, but if someone is with me it is difficult because they might laugh as you are now.
