I'm Good Luck

At the night market in Thailand, I noticed a strange phenomenon, which my friends explained to me (given the number of times I've shopped at markets in Thailand, you'd think I would have picked up on this before). If you are the first buyer of the night at a stall, they will give you a good deal. They do this because it's lucky, and then they take a special stick and lightly smack all their goods to spread the luck. At least that's how I understand it.

Well, we went to the market early, and I happened to be the first buyer at no less than four stalls. I was spreading the luck like crazy! They were quite pleasant and fast interactions, win-win all around.
