Good luck on Friday the 13th

If you are paraskavedekatriaphobic, you know that today is the one day when you must be cautious about the dreaded black cat; take care to keep the salt in the shaker; avidly avoid mirrors; leave ladders alone and – in general – stay away from ALL things that could break or fall on you.

Oh cut it — don’t front like you didn’t think about it as soon as you realized the date today! Everyone does — well, a lot of us anyway …
Ending the week on the Devil’s Dozen is the one of the most widely held superstitions in the United States – which means that if you’re not, like, totally careful today — YOU could have one seriously  effed weekend!

Being the wildly superstitious person smart Cookie  that I am, I know to be on the lookout for good luck signs that will help me counteract any bad booga booga looming large today.

** Acorns are hard to come by here in South Florida – although I do have some Buckeye nuts in the house but given Ohio State’s finish the last two years in f AND b ball –  I don’t think we can count those nuts as a harbinger of good luck.
** I’m fresh out of four-leaf clovers (what? You don’t keep some on hand, you know — just in case?)
** The nearest horse from which I could pull a shoe is at a polo stable a few miles from home – but then there’s that whole breaking and entering mess to deal with and, well, who has time for that on a workday, right?

What to do!
What to do!

Wellllll — as luck would have it — driving out of my neighborhood this morning I saw the crème de la crème – the ultimate – THE most top-shelfiest good luck symbol of them all!
A Rainbow

So, like – whew, right?!?

I’ll cross my fingers for the rest of you.
