Are you Superstitious?

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Well, I certainly am and it all revolves around the number 13. Let me list the reasons why:

First- My Dad died back in 1966 13 days before my 16th birthday. Since then I have been semi depressed for a couple of weeks before and after that date.

Second- My Mom took me on a trip to Israel in 2000 for my 50th birthday--we were at the Wailing Wall on my 50th birthday something was supposed to happen (bombing or something)-luckily it did not but it sure was tense the entire time we were in Israel! I was VERY glad when we got back on American soil.

Third- 9/11 happened two days before my birthday.

Fourth- When my birthday falls on a Friday (like this year)strange things happen! So now I try to just stay home and not tempt fate.

On the other hand:

The number 13 itself can usually bring me luck (as long as I don't attempt to use it to win something on a Friday!)

So why am I telling you all this? Because I may just disappear on Friday (of course I may not) and hide in my bed with a book (of course 7 books appeared at my door all needing reading and reviews AT THE SAME TIME) until I have to go out to dinner that evening with my Mom--I do have a post scheduled to go up that day and I hope you all go and comment on it--I will return on Saturday. But it may take me another week or two to get back to my usual happy self.

I didn't realize tomorrow was Friday 13th. I'm superstitious too. But the 13th doesn't seem to bother me that much. Good luck :)

My oldest daughter was born on the 13th of a different month. Her cousin told her when her birthday landed on a Friday, bad things were going to happen to her. She told him...well, let's just not say what she told him.

Being superstitious is a bunch of hogwash. For me, it is going against God to superstitious.

Because tomorrow is your birthday, I have something to celebrate. I think I will bake a cake for you, and we'll salute your birthday!

Happy Birthday, Michele!

I think your look is about to change for the better. Although staying in a warm and cozy bed surrounded by books sounds like heaven to me !!

My brother was born on a Friday the 13th, so I have always thought of it as good luck - BUT I know tons of people are superstitious about it. I don't even think anything bad has happened to them on the 13th - it's just one of those things.
