Am I superstitious? Not really. Do I fear black cats? Having owned a couple, I have to say no.
I do remember knocking on wood and throwing salt over a shoulder in my youth, but I cannot recall the last time I did either. If I had to turn around at times, I would feel the need to turn back the same way. I eventually grew out of it, and wrote it off as OCD.
Like other people in my older age-group (Hey! I was TOO YOUNG to attend Woodstock in '69), the older you get, the less you believe in such things as unlucky days. Since the day I was born, I have always celebrated whenever the 13th fell on a Friday simply because I was born on FRIDAY THE 13th.
I am looking forward to 2020, because it also has two months where the 13th falls on a Friday...and one of them is my BIRTHDAY!
So, while I plan my birthday celebration, I will remind you to consider reading one of my many books. You can find all their buy links HERE.
Have fun, and mind your step whenever the calendar says 'Friday the 13th'.
