Four-Leaf Clovers

It seems a friend of mine collects four-leaf clovers.

When I was a kid, I loved looking for four-leaf clovers in the lawn.  It was the same sort of relaxing concentration and observation you use to find a piece of a jigsaw puzzle. But one day, I found a clover plant in front of the garage that had multiple four-leaf clovers. Looking carefully, I found that not only were there four leaf clovers, but there were FIVE-LEAF-CLOVERS. I had hit the jackpot. And even a six-leaf clover!!!! I swear to all of God's integers that I even found a SEVEN leaf clover. I saved that seven leaf clover in my box of treasures for years, until I just had seven crumbling leafs of a clover.

I never looked for a four-leaf clover again.

Now, whenever I remember that clover plant (and that garage), I think of the toxins that must have caused the polyfoliate abomination.

Please don't let my story stop you looking for four-leaf clovers! Happy summer!
