This Week's Superstitions
Dave and I came across this black cat on the way home from The Shard on Sunday. A very handsome creature! Fortunately I am not one who suspects that black cats bring bad luck. (Does anyone really believe that?)
Not that I've had exclusively good luck of late. To wit, I paid my tax bill from New York State. Hopefully I've put that behind me now. I may still go after H&R Block to see if they can pick up the tab for the interest, as I understand may be possible. After all, if they'd done my 2010 taxes correctly, I wouldn't have had to pay that interest, would I?
A few years ago I posted a photo of a feather that came in our egg carton. The other day, it happened again. I'm going to invent a superstition that says it's good luck to find a feather in your eggs.
I came across this silly sticker on one of my walks with Olga. I think it's definitely good luck to find a silly sticker, even one that's slightly weathered and tired and rained on...
...or perhaps faded.
We'll need good luck this week in particular. We're supposed to have a tube strike beginning tonight and lasting through Thursday. Transport workers are protesting the closure of station offices and the elimination of jobs. It's a good thing I can walk to work!
