Supernatural Advisory #009: Crossed Fingers

Crossing ones middle and index finger can alternately ward off bad luck or invalidate a promise being made.

CONTEXT

Multiple sources report that the act of crossing fingers invokes supernatural protections. It is so reliable in ensuring good luck and prosperity that some people additionally cross their arms and legs for enhanced effectiveness.

The same gesture, typically enacted behind the back, can negate the consequences of telling of a lie or swearing a promise.

FIELD NOTES

lyrics

Silence can be a virtue it’s true
High hopes destined to blossom in you

Casting a spell
I’m ringing a bell
I’m crossing my fingers
Wishing you well

Wishing you well
I’m kissing and telling
Strangely compelling
Glowing with pride

Whisper tell me a secret desire
Blameless I’m only playing with fire

Clearing my conscience
Betting on nonsense
Crossing my fingers
Wishing you well

Wishing you well
I’m kissing and telling
Glowing with pride
I’m dying inside

Faithless I’ll stop at nothing to win
Lawless breaking commandments I sin

Laughing it off
My fingers are crossed
The same empty gesture
Pardons a lie

You have a grievance
I have a sixth sense
Spare me the pretense
It doesn’t count
