Are you superstitious? Do you avoid walking under ladders? Black cats? Do you throw salt over your shoulder when you spill some? And today being Friday 13th, are you staying in bed all day to avoid all those creepy bad things that will happen if you get out?
I walked under a ladder a few weeks ago. Unless I wanted to walk through soaking wet grass, it was the only way to get to my front door. Mind you, I did ask the roofer whether it was safe first. No need to get a roofing tile splitting my skull!
I have met a black cat a few years ago. It preferred my sister, yet nothing bad happened to me: only weeks later I found this old wooden cottage I now live in very happily.
And spilling salt? I can't remember ever doing that. I don't use it that much either, so no need to go throwing it over my shoulder!
Today is Friday 13th and my mum is coming. I told her to get her luggage in Oslo. I hope she did, otherwise she will have to wear my clothes. Which are too big for her. I arranged a pick-up for her from the local airport. I hope they recognise each other. I sent a photo of the picker-upper to my mum and the picker-upper only needs to look for me, just a bit greyer.
But, hopefully Friday 13th will turn out to be a positive day. Because I hope (writing this on Monday) that I will be coming home today.
