i knock on wood..that's what she said
Throwing salt over my left shoulder
I knock on wood too.I don't walk under ladders.I say, "bless you" when someone sneezes.Rob is a geek.
If I see a black cat in front of me, I maneuver around it quickly so that I walk in front of it and it doesn't walk in front of me. I usually call it a "stupid cat bastard" in the process and than laugh at how now it'll have seven years of bad luck.I get a lot of looks for this one.
I went to catholic school for 13 years so that's enough superstition to last me a lifetime.
When you believe in things that you don't understand, then you suffer, superstition ain't the way.
john: zing!leslie: shut it
I say bless you after a sneeze too, but not because I want to make sure the devil doesn't posses you after you've given him the sneeze opening, it's just common courtesy nowadays.
I avoid the number 13 in every way I can. I don't look at my odometer during the 13th mile. I don't look at a stopwatch during the 13th minute. I always stop at 12 beers. I considered sleeping all the way through the day today.
i say bless you, but not out of superstition either. and i knock on wood (btw, you can't "that's what she said" yourself. just not how it's done). I also avoid breaking mirrors but more because broken glass is dangerous and a pain to clean up rather than from any superstitious belief.
i'm interested in what martin does when the song "black cat" comes on. i had a streak where bad things kept happened to be on Friday the 13th (car accident, hurting myself, losing my credit card). so i made it a rule that no one was allowed to say "oooh it's friday the 13th" around me. i think i'm over it. but please, don't say it to me today.
Opening umbrellas inside brings bad luckAn itchy palm means money will come your wayIf you shiver, someone (a goose!) is casting a shadow on your graveTo kill an albatross is to cause bad luck to the ship and all upon it
I don't want to lose youThis good thingThat I got'Cause if I doI will surely,surely lose a lot'Cause your love is betterThan any love I knowIt's like thunder and lightningThe way you love me is frighteningYou better knock, knock on wood, baby
this is silly but...i usually sneeze in threes, so when i don't, it totally freaks me out.
