A lot of people are superstitious about Friday the 13th. I’m one of them, but not in the traditional way. Instead of bad luck, I like to think Friday the 13th invokes good luck. Good things have happened to me on past Friday the 13ths. I passed my driver’s test, I won playing Lottery Scratchers, hit a mini jackpot at a Las Vegas casino. Though I remember as a child, when my Dad was pulled over for speeding, he blamed it on Friday the 13th. But, that didn’t dissuade my infatuation with the date. I’ve always had a soft spot for it. And probably because I like to prove people wrong.
So, when I saw the date, I had to go out and give luck a shot. Stopped at a gas station to fill up and bought a $1 Lotto ticket. I was too late for tonight’s drawing so I bought one for tomorrow’s. Somebody’s got to win it. Wish me luck!
