Lucky 13! 30 Thanks is at post 13. I'm thankful that I am not superstitious.
I have purposely walked under a ladder and it did not collapse onto me. I accidentally broke a mirror and my good luck, nonexistent as it is, did not get any worse. Black cats followed me on my neighborhood walks, so no bad luck there, either.
I previously would not pick up a penny if it was tails, but since the economy is what it is, I will pick it up if these things are all aligned:
If when I bend down, no one is close by to see my rearend!
There isn't a car coming who wouldn't see me, so I don't get rearended!
It's a clean enough penny, so I'm not grossed out.
And last, but most important, I know bending to pick it up will not dislocate my hip!!!
