Friday the 13th

I'm not at all superstitious--well, not in traditional ways. I have no problem with spilled salt. I love it when black cats cross my path. Walk blithely under ladders. OK, I will alter my gait so as not to step on cracks--but other than that, I am anti-superstitious. I actually like Friday the 13th when it sporadically rolls around.

But not this one. Today started with phone calls to a state tax agency, computer glitches and nit-picky penny ante producer's reps followed by bank fees and bounced payments and credit card customer service calls. Yikes! That's way scarier than black cats.

Come to think of it, there is a black cat where I work. Maybe I should have let him cross my path for good luck. Better yet, could someone please pass the salt?

  1. each week we put a demo for the company, of which 20-60 appear. Thursday afternoon, I asked my boss what my Friday demo would be -- he said he's working on it... Friday I made some stuff up, then he says I'll be doing something else. The demo went splendidly, and I learned a bunch of geeky stuff.

    Sometimes 13ths aren't bad!
