How to keep your fingers crossed

like cross fingers

pros
Hello good Stern.de team, how do you (really) keep your fingers crossed?
Because the way I do it doesn't work every time.
I do it like this: make a fist (so that I cross my thumb).
And say a sentence that starts with the word "hopefully".
Thanks a lot for your answer

Definitely not "ink pots"!
That brings misfortune!

Furthermore, you break your thumb when you strike like that!

Try to start the sentence with "Hopefully" instead of "Hopefully". Noticed difference? Maybe then it will work, hopefully.
