Are you superstitious?

Are you superstitious?
I just acknowledged that today is Friday 13th. I suppose I'm quite a superstitious person. Are you?

I didn't actually realise it was Friday the 13th today. :roll:

I am quite superstitious but then again if there is a ladder, I wouldnt walk around it, I'd just go under it. But then again if I broke a mirror I would be quite worried about getting seven years bad luck.

So I guess I'm half and half. :-s
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

well, for football I have a routine. Easterners by traditon are usually superstitios but I have a few odd ones. I have to be the 4th person to enter the field and I touch the roof of the tunnel as I'm going out. Then once on the field I put on my goalkeeper's top and put my towel in the middle octogon of the goals. I cannot play in blue, I have a lucky chain and I always dive the same way at the first penalty.

so, yeah I am superstitious
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

I wouldn't say I was superstitious but I knew it was friday 13th and I suppose I was a bit more cautious especially driving to work this morning.
:D
When all things in life seem blue,
And there's nothing you can do,
There is One you can turn to,
His name is Jesus, He loves you.

I am not superstitious, it is your mind that tends to link things with superstitious tales and so you tend to notice them more.

I'm not superstitious but i wouldn't walk under a ladder! Only because I think it's kind of unsafe to walk under one.

Don't really care about other things, I don't mind black cats and I would put new shoes on a table!

What superstitions have people heard of? Like the black cat or walking under a ladder, I only heard today that walking over a drain three times is bad luck or something!

I'm not superstitious at all. Not in the way that most people think, anyways.

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.
