You've got to accentuate the positive
A lucky charm bracelet? A lucky charm bracelet that "enhances the power of positive thought" as reported in today's Age newspaper. La Chance is the maker of this powerful bracelet and please say this out loud with your most Aussie accent "lachanzze" - just for fun. The new celebrity must-have item valued at $600 is seen as a positive reminder of how good life is according to a Hi-5 singer, so it must be true. So if I rush out and purchase my new positive enhancement bracelet can I then assume I a) will become a celebrity too and not have to work very hard for a living and b) earn so much money I will lose any sense of reality that this amount of money for something that could be made out of macaroni for all we know is necessary? Somehow it would take more than a charm bracelet for me to be positive about forking out that much dosh unless of course I was the owner of the company that made the item and then that would be really very positive indeed. So for good luck, good fortune and lashings of positive thought, buy yourself nothing. You will be richer for it (in more ways than one). Personally, I like diamonds. There is plenty of positive thought about getting one of those.
