Lucky is the new carpet

Taken from: The National Television Awards 2014

Since I couldn’t decide on my favourite post (with almost 300 to choose from, it’s a pretty big ask of any blogger this far into the challenge), I decided to see what the blogging communities favourite was… and ta-dah! I also changed it a little, in choosing the 5th word instead of the 4th – I think some how “was is the new carpet” just didn’t make any sense… although I agree that “lucky is the new carpet” is equally as strange.

This could mean however, since being lucky is the new carpet, that people take it for granted by simply walking all over it, showing no appreciation. Carpet provides you with warmth and comfort regardless of the situation, which could also translate as a feeling when experiencing luck.

It would be great to hear more thoughts on my new saying…

Freaky Friday

#109: If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be, and why? If that seems too easy, try this one: who would you like to have spend a day as you and what do you hope they’d learn from the experience?

I’m going to answer both – just for kicks! So, if I could be anyone for a day, I’d be Jane Goodall… without a shadow of a doubt. Just to have a day interacting with the wild chimpanzees, being able to stare right into their eyes, would truly make my life worthwhile.

This one is a little trickier as expected. However, the first person that came to mind was the CEO/boss of the company I work for. This way he’d be able to see just how much hard work I put into every day and I hope he’d learn that I’m a valuable part of the team.
