Fibs for the thirteenth

Here are my responses to my earlier questions. Hope you like them!


1. What does it mean if you have an itchy right palm?
That your hands need washing.
2. On the other hand, what does it mean if you have an itchy left?
That you didn’t use enough sanitizer.
3. Why is it considered good luck to find a horseshoe?
Because it didn’t hit you on the head when it came off the horse.
4. Why is saying ‘Bless you’ when someone sneezes considered to be good luck?
It was to protect you from any evil spirit fleeing from their body through their nose.
5. Why do we say ‘Find a penny, pick it up?’
Because in those days, you never knew when you might need a public loo
6. Why do we ‘knock on wood?’
It’s better than being knocked out by it.
7. Why is the number 666 considered unlucky?
It means that the emergency 999 service is in serious trouble.
8. Why do some people believe it’s unlucky to step on the cracks in the pavement?
Having watched too many horror films, they believed they would swallow them up.
9. Why do we cross our fingers for good luck?
It’s easier than crossing our legs, which is something else entirely.
10. Why is it unlucky to open an umbrella indoors?
Because it means you’ve got a leaking roof.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
