Money and luck?

In a recent transaction with a marketplace vendor, I fell into a friendly light mixed-Thai-English conversation. She probably gave me the most opportunity outside language class to practise my Thai, mixing English to help me and gladly answering my questions of how to say specific words or translate expressions she zinged out in her thousandsylabolspersecondspeaking.

Somehow, by the end of the transaction, she had the impression I was a successful wealthy American (??)… and took my bills and flapped it over all her merchandise in her stall, high and low. I asked what she was doing and she said “spreading the good fortune.”

So when does good fortune come to this good luck charm- me?
