What's it Mean if Your Left Palm Itches?

No, it doesn't mean you've got hairy palms. Get your mind out of the gutter. I think it's if your left palm itches, it means money is going to leave. If your right palm itches, it means money is going to be received. Left = leave. Right = receive. [Don't you love those little ways to remember things? Like "lefty loosy" and "righty tighty" for screwing off and on lids and nuts and such?]

[For you searchers who have landed here because I've written about hairy palms, screwing and nuts: you've got the wrong idea here.]

What's it all mean for me, for real? Freakin' poison oak. On the arms, on a thigh, near an eye. [I could so do Dr. Seuss. But not as in "do" him, as in mimic his style. Go away errant searchers. Piss off.]

Now, if a right palm really meant I was going to receive money, I'd so be rubbing my right hand in the sea of poison oak we are trying to eradicate from the back yard. [Pete was wrapped in plastic and done up with duct tape yesterday for his foray into the wilds. Clearly, we've been watching far too much CSI: NY not that we have Direct TV.] [BTW, if anyone is going to be getting Direct TV, let me know. We can split the referral bonus money I get for sending you there. Wait. My right palm is itching.]

Spray Clorox Anywhere Spray on it. My good friend has poison oak right now and her only relief is the anywhere spray. She swears by it.

Oh no!
I'm so sorry. That sounds awful.
But at least you have some serious rhymes going on.

By far the best part of this post: [For you searchers who have landed here because I've written about hairy palms, screwing and nuts: you've got the wrong idea here.]

I have no suggestions...just laughed out loud in the airport. Thought I'd let you know.

Oh dear. The Mountain Man can catch poison ivy if he looks at it for too long. I hadn't heard the itchy palm lore. I'll have to start paying attention.

Ooh poison oak - that sucks! I've got about 8 mosquito bites on one arm and it's driving me crazy. I somewhat feel your pain.
