    Friday, the 13th

    Today, I will be:
    • standing on a crack in the sidewalk,
    • under a ladder
    • with my fingers crossed
    • repairing a mirror I broke
    • after spilling some salt
    • because I was startled by a black cat crossing my path

    I've already did what I wanted to do today. I've found a black cat and crossed its path. Ha! The bugger was hiding by the road stalking to cross mine.

    Superstition is a funny thing, the fact you believe in it makes it more likely to affect your life. People who believe their going to have an accident (for example) are scientifically more likely to suffer one due to overcompensation, there was a study about it years ago which explained the rise in admittance to A&E and the relationship to paranoid superstitious behaviour. I don't think Friday 13th is anything but another day of the week, it's really as simple as that!
