One of our local museums (we are blessed here) will be having an exhibition on lucky objects. Their promotional email said,
'Explore popular beliefs and rituals, attitudes to risk, gambling and games of chance at this new exhibition. Unusual objects range from Ancient Egyptian amulets, lucky horse shoes and Ouija boards to lottery tickets and furry dice.'
It's a story waiting to happen, isn't it, really. I mean, what if some of them really are magical? what if they interact? What if a mad scientist has finally identified the artefact that actually works but it all goes horribly wrong? I've got to write it. Just after the other twenty plus ideas I have cued up.
