Yes, I am Superstitious


I freely admit that I am superstitious.

I don't walk under ladders. (bad luck)

I ALWAYS put my right shoe on first (bad luck otherwise)

I put cash into my wallet all facing the same direction in order of denomination, low in the front, high toward the back. (probably just OCD)

I say "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" as the first words out of my mouth on the first day of each month - either right after midnight or right when I wake up...either counts. I get angry with myself if I forget and say something else first. (good luck for the month)

I NEVER kill spiders intentionally. (bad luck)

And I am a big proponent of heads-up coins. For example:

All of the change in my car's change holder is heads-up. Guaranteed. Honestly, I didn't even realize I did this until a friend of mine years ago bet that it was all heads up. Sure enough, it was. (definite OCD)

When I see a coin on the ground, if I choose to pick it up, it must be heads-up. If it's not, I'll flip it over first, ensuring that one edge is always touching the ground, then pick it up. (good luck)

I was lucky enough to find two legit heads-up pennies yesterday, and another two today. (very good luck!)
Buena Suerte!
Yes, I realize this behavior is odd.

Hmm. I always thought if you killed a spider it would rain! So, I usually put the few spiders I come across back outside.

So WHY has it been raining all day?!

Your 'rabbit X 3' cracked me up. I had never heard of that before!
