Why of course I am, it is Friday the thirteenth, isn’t it? Are you superstitious? I say I am not and it doesn’t bother me at all to walk under a ladder, but I think way down underneath somewhere, we are all a little superstitious at times. My mother and her mother had a few. My grandma would have a fit if someone opened an umbrella in the house or if a bird tried to get into a window. She believed that they were an omen or prediction of a death in that house. When we left in the car to go somewhere, my mother would never let us go back in the house if we forgot something. She said that was really bad luck and she would be afraid that we would have an accident on the road if someone where to return to the house to get something.
I have had routines that could possibly be called superstitions, I suppose. Athletes and actors seem to have their little routines they do before performing. I even think that fisherman and hunters have their own little private routines to help increase their chances of success. I was always one of those persons who would do something just because everyone said not to do it because it would bring me bad luck. Of course, just think how great a life I would have had if I had listened to them (grin). Actually, I am pretty satisfied with my life and looking forward to more of the same. Oops, I shouldn’t have said that, it will bring me bad luck. . . !!!
OK, you all be careful out there on this unlucky day, you hear?
By the way, I did answer the last two comments on yesterday's blog. Sorry I didn't get to it until this morning.
