The Lucky Sackie

Once upon a time, a long time ago (6 months) in a galaxy far, far away (Santa Rosa, CA) there lived a boy named Vinnie Guido Guisseppe Paco Juan Jos� Benito Smith(Me).

One day, Vinnie found a Lucky Sackie(Sacajewa(or however the hell you spell her name) dollar). The little boy carried it in his pocket wherever he went. It was the first Sackie he had ever had and he loved it and it loved him. The Lucky Sackie brought the little boy much luck, because the Sackie knew the little boy loved it above all other Sackies.

Parenthetical note: "When one is a mass-produced coin, even if one is gold and shiny, one tends to feel a little lost in the crowd. Being loved above all other coins gives one special powers to bring luck to others; This is kind of like the power of the Velveteen Rabbit, et al."

One day, the evil Lord Nicotinus came down from his Mountain on High and screamed at the little boy, "You must smoke the leaves of the flower in my garden or else I will curse you with the most evil curse in the LAND! The Nicotinus Fit!

The little boy was frightened and, having only the Lucky Sackie and some change from in the couch, ran to Mr Chang's Little Korean Market to buy the prepackaged flowers to smoke.

When the little boy passed Mr Chang the Lucky Sackie, her heart was broken. She said to herself, "Let all the good luck that I have lavished on this little boy turn around on him and come back as BAD luck times three!"

Everything was fine for a while, then one day, when the little boy LEAST expected it, something terrible happened! The little boy threw a rock at his mother in a fit of anger and made one of her eyes pop out. The eye was mad because it liked living in the mother's head, where it was warm and cozy so it followed the little boy around and stared at him in a en evil way (this is very hard to do when you don't have the accessory eyelids and facial features to make a stare look evil).

The little boy knew he did the wrong thing by letting the Lucky Sackie go like that, but he also knew that he couldn't just go get another sackie and call it his Lucky Sackie. It had to come to him.

The boy worked and worked and waited and waited and then one day something amazing happened! Some crusty old guy that he was doing a nuclear medicine scan on was thanking him after his test was over and he GAVE THE LITTLE BOY A LUCKY SACKIE, with the kind words, "Everybody needs a little luck now and then." Can you fucking believe it? The Evil Eye popped back into the mother's eye-socket and stopped staring evilly at the little boy and everything was happy joy joy the end.

This story is based on a true story. It happened to ME so I know!

You forgot the moral of the story: "Smoking's BAD, mkay?"

I have a lucky Sackie, too. And a lucky $1 bill that got stuffed in my bra one day while stripping.
