Friday the 13th again. It seems there is a phobia to the number 13: friggatriskaidekaphobia. I think I would have a phobia of trying to spell or say that.

I could not believe how many superstitions are out there. Some I thought were just sayings going from generation to generation. Some include:

  • Cross your fingers for good luck
  • Knock on wood
  • Break a mirror and that's seven years bad luck. There's very few mirrors in our house
  • It is bad luck to sing at the table. I wonder if that is why my dad would say, "No singing at the table."
  • Cold hands, warm heart. That's me, my hands are usually cold
  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away

The list goes on. Of course, that really doesn't cover what baseball players or any athletes do when they are on or off the field. I have heard some players' superstitions are not to have any.

So, tomorrow are you going to watch scary movies or funny-scary movies? I thought of a few:

  • Nightmare on Elm Street, could make it a marathon
  • Chainsaw Massacre
  • Poltergeist
  • Blair Witch Project. I do not suggest Blair Witch Project 2 though
  • Maybe, something funny would be better. The 'Burbs with Tom Hanks. That movie kind of puts scary with funny. It's Tom Hanks. I came in the middle of that film right when Chainsaw Massacre guy was coming down the stairs.

I will cross my fingers for a good day.

The sun is shining above ... Think Happy Thoughts.
