Day 13 - Superstition

I knock on wood.  I toss salt over my left shoulder if I spill it.  I pick up pennies for luck.  I save wishbones. I have my share of little superstitions but I have never however been superstitious about Friday the 13th.  In fact I think I fall in with those who find it to be a rather lucky day - okay so I don't have a negative superstition about Friday the 13th.

Thirteen is a prime number, divisible only by itself and one.  When I think of prime numbers they take on a personality of independence and self reliance.   I'm also a big fan of Friday with it being the last day of the work or school week.  The number thirteen and Friday isn't so bad of a combination.

This Friday the 13th was also the day I learned I received a higher than expected grade in my business statistics class.  This was a class I was struggling with, mostly due to time constraints, and so finding out I actually did pretty well was great news.

So Happy Friday the 13th to you!

  1. Congratulations on the Business Stats grade! I remember doing statistics at uni and they royally kicked my butt!

    Also, I quite like Friday 13th ... it seems to be a lot nicer to me than most Mondays.
