I see myself as a rational person but then I'm still superstitious. When I was younger I had more of the usual ones like fearing bad luck if a black cat crossed my path or never walking under ladders. I now only have two that I adhere to, one is that I have to have the William Eggleston picture of an airplane window up on the day the hubby has to catch a flight for his many work trips abroad and the other one is that I never put my keys on the table. I think some of the more common superstitions are there because of common sense; walk under a ladder and it might fall on you or someone might drop something on your head; break a mirror and you might cut yourself (I did break a mirror once but I didn't get seven years of bad luck). I know different countries have different superstitions; when the hubby insists on calling "Hail, hail" to a magpie I scoff, forgetting about my own versions of the same thing. Now, I thought it might be fun to find out what your superstitions are, do you have your own personal ones and which ones are typical of your country?
I hope I'm not alone on this one... I'm not crazy... I think.
