Are you superstitious?

Not about Friday the 13th - after all, I was born on a Friday the 13th and life has been good. Not perfect, lots of really deep and dark holes, but the balance is sunny and positive.

The only "superstitions" that I really try to observe is walking under a ladder (well, scaffolding) since I don't want anything to accidentally fall on me, and putting my purse on the ground (said to facilitate loss of money.) First of all, why take the chance, second, you never really know how clean or dirty the floor is especially in public places. Third, it can easily be snatched (leading to outflow/loss of money and properties.) How many people have set their camera or computer bag on the ground in a public place such as streets or airports or train stations and looked down to find it gone?

Sounds like Friday the 13th isn't a bad day since you were born on it.

The only time I have ever been fired from a job was on a Friday the 13th. This Friday the 13th, I came down with strep & had to miss/cancel my bridal shower, bachelorette party AND my brother's graduation. Ick!

I've been known to hang my purse by my neck if it has a long strap, or clutch it under my armpits. I think I even tried to bit the straps.

Oh, I am so very sorry about the strep, your bridal shower, bachelorette party and your brother's graduation. I hope that you feel better soon!

I haven't been superstitious about the 13th either, but I'm starting to be :-)

I like the photo of the colored balloon--it's so great!
