The worst thing that has happened to me today...
I had almost forgotten that today is Friday the 13th. I noted that just before I went to sleep last night around 11 pm, then promptly forgot it until just about now.
No triskaidekaphobia here, I guess. I learned the word way back around 1st grade when I was about 6 and have remembered it ever since; my memory seems pretty good, but I plumb forgot that today is supposed to be unlucky.
I didn't realize that others may have kept that one item more strongly in their memories. I woke up a little late. My landlady was notably quick to rush out of the way. One of my most friendly neighbors didn't want to say her usually long 'hellos' in the morning as I go past, walking on my way to work. It would be superstitious of me to chalk that all up to Friday the 13th, so I won't, but denying or not recognizing something doesn't make it false or nonexistent.
I don't know what you call my seeming nonrecognition of Friday, the 13th. Avoidance, maybe?
Well, on with my work. Gladly, my grad school course's final exam is NEXT Week, on the 17th. No problemo!
And tonight's LUCKY Chinese vegan dinner ... Yep!
All very lucky!
I was wondering WHY my Asian neighbor was wearing bright RED last night. Entirely UNLIKE her. Usually she wears darks and/or pastels.
Please note that I DID NOT purchase pears this morning at Haymarket.
