So C is from the South, and apparently it is a tradition down there to eat black-eyed peas on New Years Day, which will cause you to have good luck all year. I have spent a lifetime of not eating black-eyed peas on new years day, which means I've had bad luck my whole life. Gads. On the bright side, this is all going to change! Today, yes, this very evening, I enjoyed my first black-eyed pea. Actually, I had several black-eyed peas. So this means good luck, all year! Hooray! I can't wait!
