Two for Joy

Just a magpie and his inflatable friend

There once was a magpie who felt guilty for bringing everyone who saw him bad luck. One day he came across a balloon bird floating through the sky, escaping from some child’s hand. It was just his size, and just his colour, so he tied it to his wing, and ever since then, when anyone sees him, they say ”two for joy!“ instead of “one for sorrow.”
