Are you superstitious?

I am superstitious and came by it honestly from my grandma.

Any other superstitions y'all have out there?

1. Don't be superstitious. It's unlucky!

2. I wish I were not lol.

But I truly am.

I have been reading a book about the Edmund Fitzgerald, and I was interested to see that the champagne bottle did not break at its christening. Numerous other type occurrences with that ship.

Sailors are notoriously superstitious, which is what made me think of this.

5. Me too

I don't think you can truly be a baseball fan without being at least a little superstitious.

7. I think most sports fans/athletes are superstitious.

They will wear the same shirt, shorts, etc that they did in a previous win.

6. Not one bit.

But I do look both ways before crossing a street.

Even if it's a one-way street.

8. My son got nailed by a cyclist going the wrong way on a Boston one way street.

He stepped off the curb without looking both ways. He had minor injuries, she flew off over the handlebars and was more seriously injured. Looking both ways all the time is just plain smart.
