I tucked it into the waist band of my shorts for the rest of practice. I didn't have pockets and my bra was all but nonexistent, so I couldn't put it in there without the fear of it just dropping out from under my shirt.
When I got home, I taped it on a piece of paper and stuck it in my wallet for good luck. I felt special finding it.
Twenty years later, it's still in my wallet on that same piece of paper with the same tape. I should laminate it but I don't have anything to do that with and besides, it's been like this for 20 years, why change it now? It's yellowed and dried out but it's the one and only four leaf clover that I've ever found.
I usually forget it's in there until I'm changing out my wallet or searching for that single penny that I need to buy my large coke from McD's. When I see it, it brings a smile to my face because I vividly remember that day sitting in the large field, thinking holy crap... they really do exist.
My lucky day.
Do you have a talisman?
