Friday the 13th

Do you go running the other direction when a Friday the 13th rolls around? Hide in your home or office, refusing to come out? Blame absolutely everything unpleasant that happens on what day it is? It won’t matter if you’re normally a clumsy person. If you trip and fall today, it’s only because today brings bad luck. Trust me, you aren’t alone.

Me? I embrace it. Yeah, I’m weird like that. You see, I grew up just down the road from a cemetery. I went past it almost every day of my life before I got married. Once, a black cat run out of the cemetery and across my path on a Friday the 13th. Odd thing was, it seemed to bring me good luck. From then on, I look forward to a day that a lot of people dread.

However, I don’t have any major plans to go anywhere today…just work on my book. But I will tell you I’ll be wearing black. Hmm. Maybe I’m more superstitious than I thought, only bassackwards from everyone else. 😉

Enjoy your Friday!!

    Hi, Linda!
    I had a good day on Friday, and I’m not superstitious about Friday the 13th. I was getting ready for Don’s birthday and the things I made turned out well.

    Glad you aren’t superstitious, either. Although, I try not to press my luck. Hey, karma is karma. Right?

    So glad Don had a good birthday! I believe you’ve got yourself a keeper there. 😉
