Superstition

The Magic Number Thirteen

In 2009, we will have at least three occurances of Friday the 13th. What seems like an even more startling coincidence is the fact that February and then March will see the 13th fall on a Friday.
In honor of this momentous occassion, I feel obliged to remind you of my sincere belief:

It is bad luck to be superstitious.

On each of those fateful fridays I will, likely, be:

  • Under a ladder
  • on a crack
  • repairing a mirror I broke
  • while throwing salt over my shoulder
  • because a black cat crossed my path
