Friday the 13th

If you weren't already aware of this, I was born on a Friday the 13th. Seriously. It was dark and stormy. Also seriously. I'm sure it was bound to have made my mom a little more nervous than she already was about having her first child. Something that's kind of crazy to me is that she was the same age as I am now... goodness knows I'm not ready to be popping out any babies, nor have I already been married for 5 years like she had at 25. Regardless, she and I are some of the least superstitious people I know. How could we be considering I was freaking BORN on a Friday the 13th? I'm of the opinion that it doesn't matter if a penny is on heads or not... it's still a penny I'm picking up to put in my piggy bank.

I think the thing that makes the whole Friday the 13th thing even more interesting is my black cat Tucker. That was a fluke, I swear. I didn't go looking for a black Halloween cat, but that's the one I fell in love with when I came across a litter of free kittens.

To be honest, I remember that I've always felt myself to be especially lucky on Friday the 13th when it rolls around. I recall a few times in high school where I had an especially good day... maybe I won a contest or found out about getting a scholarship... maybe a cute boy flirted with me... things like that.

I can't say that anything all that interesting has happened today, other than it is dark and stormy outside right now and I'm about to go home to my black cat. But the day isn't over yet... so I suppose we'll see.

Happy Friday the 13th to you all!

Ah, I've heard that children born on Friday the 13th are considered lucky! ;) (Truly!)

i have 2 black kitties. one just walked in the door one day and made himself at home. the other was an abandoned kitten.

i tend to think that they give me good luck. after all multiply 2 negatives and you get a positive.

My Friday the 13th was definitely unlucky. It's just an unlucky month for me I guess... oh and by the way I had a black cat named Tucker too! I think it's a popular name.
