It’s time for Truthful Tuesday. Frank asks: “Whether tossing a pinch of salt over your shoulder or not walking under ladders, and whether you believe in the superstition or not, what superstition, if any, do you still observe?”
I can’t say that I am superstitious about many things. I have never been one to throw salt over my shoulder, say that if a spoon drops company is coming, believe that is my palm itches money is coming, worry about breaking a mirror, stress about opening an umbrella inside, or walking under a ladder.
In fact, I have a giant ladder outside that’s been there for months. I need to paint the outside of my balcony wall. I haven’t been physically up to it so there sits the ladder. I walk under it daily with no fear or worry.
I do however, say knock on wood if I state something I want to happen. I do say Bless You whenever someone sneezes. I don’t think something will happen if I don’t say those phrases, they are just a part of my upbringing.
