Yesterday was Thursday the 12th, tomorrow is Saturday the 14th. That makes today Friday the…
12+1th or 14-1th.
I refuse to admit it is “that certain number”. All goes well on “that day” as long as I don’t say or think the day/date combination exactly. As soon as I say – write or think- ‘Oh dear, today’s Friday the hummana-hammana’, I realise what mayhem could happen to me on this date and all hell breaks loose immediately.
I will be attacked by a black cat, hit by a falling ladder, trip over a broken mirror and tons of salt will fall on my left shoulder.
But not today. I will just pretend today is Friday the 12plus1th. Period.
Superstitious? I sure am. Cautious? Absolutely!
Anyway, how do you survive this particular day?
