Thursday Thinking #13

This is a weekly series that I hope you will take part in. Basically, I will ask a question, you answer. Easy-peasy. ;) Sometimes the questions will be very simple and easy to answer in one word. Other times they may be more controversial and require a bit thought on your part.


Are you superstitious? 

I am. I worry that bad things come in threes. I knock on wood (or wood-like-products) when I say something that is too good. I’m also afraid to use my children’s health as an excuse to not do something for fear it will happen.

  1. Oh yes! I knock on wood, throw salt over shoulder if im cooking, and very careful when hanging mirrors. Don’t think it helps all the time, but enough to keep me doing it.

  2. I have some superstitions…karma always comes back to bite you. I think death comes in 3s and a baby born can offset it. I have a few others but I can’t think of then currently lol

  3. Most definitely have some – like working in ED on Friday 13th with a full moon – I’d rather not.
    Never ever on call say (or let the intern say) ‘It sure is quiet’ (talk about bad karma – shortly there after will have more admissions than you know what to do with.

  4. I karma-cap everything!!! It has the same effect as knocking on wood, but there doesn’t have to be any wood around. so you are protected from bad karma wherever you go.

    I also refuse to write down any big events like anniversaries or boyfriend’s birthdays in my planner/calendar until the week of. doing so beforehand ensures that you will breakup before hand and have to stare at that for the rest of the time as a horrific reminder.

    I also don’t say things about how things will break or a “with our luck” this thing will happen. because then it will.
