Disclaimer: The following question is an in-Universe question for a wip project called "The gods of ordinariness"
My friends, I am in a spot of trouble. On my daily drive to work, I have to pass a grand total of 34 traffic lights. This of course entails a lot of waiting around and in my boredom, I tend to make up fantastical stories and characters in my head. Lately, I have been reading up on the mythology of ancient Greece and Rome, and, inspired by their slew of minor gods for all manner of things, I came up with one myself:
Enoia, the ample bosomed goddess of traffic lights (a pun regarding my annoyance at red lights and the German word for traffic lights, "Ampel")
I would say stuff like "Please turn the next light green, Enoia" when approaching an intersection and "Praise be to you Enoia!" and "Why do you hate me Enoia?" respectively depending on if my prayer came true. This was just a lighthearted way to deal with the annoyances of commuting, until today.
You see this morning, I overslept. Luckily it wasn't for a very long time, about fifteen minutes, but long enough to make it very likely for me to get to work late and get in trouble with management.
As I jumped into my car, I mumbled something along the lines of "Come on Enoia, if I get nothing but green lights on my way, I swear I'll make it up to you somehow." I didn't really mean anything by this, but surely enough, every single traffic light either was green already or jumped straight to green as I approached. In the end, not only did I manage to get to work in time, I actually arrived five minutes early. This has never happened before and statistically, the chance for every single one of these 34 traffic lights to be green must be close to zero percent.
Personally, I'd call myself agnostic, but this strange occurrence has got me a little spooked. I don't really believe that there actually was a goddess of traffic lights watching over me, but what if?
I don't want to incur her wrath by failing to uphold my promise and get nothing but red lights from now on, you know. But on the other hand, I have no clue how I can actually please her. Thankful prayers don't seem to cut it given how hit-and-miss my experience with traffic lights was before. I also don't have a clue about her other than the name I have made up for her and that she has the power to cause traffic lights to change. This leads me to my question:
What would be a good offering to Enoia, the goddess that controls traffic lights and how can I make sure she receives it?
Oh, and human sacrifice is off-limits!
