Truthful Tuesday: June 29th, 2021

The Question

Despite our attempts to call ourselves intelligent rational beings, we still hold on to some traditions or actions that stem from superstition, even if we don’t necessarily believe those superstitions. Some are easy to let go, such as fear of black cats crossing your path, but others, such as tossing a pinch of salt over the shoulder, are a bit harder to let go of. With that in mind, this week’s question is:

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 don’t consider myself to be superstitious, though I am familiar with black cats crossing paths, walking under ladders, third time lucky, broken mirrors etc, etc.
I have found in the past that bad things do tend to come in threes, but that’s about it.
I worked with a guy who was very superstitious and come Friday 13th, he always booked a day off and stayed in bed………… I kid you not.
Hubby and I both play along with not stepping on the cracks in a pavement because it’s supposed to be unlucky, but that’s just the big kid in us.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I remember walking on pavement as a kid and we used to say, “step on a crack and it breaks your mother’s back,”
