The Thirteenth

My mother is very superstitious. It is baffling how my father can tolerate her crazy superstitions. I am not but today I am. It is Friday the 13th.

When I was younger, I was sure to see a scary movie today. I always think about the studio bigwigs screaming: WE HAVE TO GET A GOOD SCARY MOVIE FOR THE 13th! Consult the calendar!

But every Friday for the last four weeks, troubling health issues and injuries have occurred. So on this day, I am not leaving the house, using with anything sharp or even walking in the backyard.

I will be out in the world tomorrow.
