FRIDAY THE 13th

Got any superstitions? No, I don't mean the ones your Church has indoctrinated into you. The ones like walking under ladders or seeing a black cat. The number 13th is a lucky number in Italy. My Grandmother had a gold #13 on a chain I believe. I miss her, since the ladder incident.

Jokes about dead people really aren't funny.

I guess you've never seen Beetlejuice.

Okay, I don't know anything about the status of your grandmother, but I thought the joke was pretty funny.

I'm not supersticious (partly because I can't spell it!) The number 12 was my favorite for awhile as a child because I thought it brought me success at a baton twirling competition. When I dropped my baton 10 times in the next event, though, I got over that in a hurry.

Hey, Trish. I was a terrible baton twirler. Far better at tap and jazz. Stunk at ballet and could barely turn a cartwheel. Anonymous was not amused - c'est la vie. Anonymous 2 seemed to get it. Probably the church reference turned someone off. Don't care. Last night my kids had CCD for special ed and the teacher brought up EXORCISM - how weird is that? Teaching kids with autism about exorcism. ugh!

If only Father Damien Karras could come to my school...

Don't laugh, Harvey. A Fr. Damien IS in our parish! And don't you attend temple? ;)

I thought it was funny. We tried the salt over the shoulder one whenever the salt shaker spilled on the table. Until the kids thought it was pretty funny to "Intentionally" knock over the salt shaker, just so they could throw some over their shoulder. And with 3 kids, I was sweeping up alot of salt!

I have a firm belief that my sandstone turtle protects me. Bad things happen when that baby isn't around my neck (hospitalization, a breakdown in a place called Possum Junction.) I make jokes about this odd supersition of mine all the time, but deep down, well, you know.
