Friday the 13th

Hi Gigglers:

For the past two months I havent had very much time to submit anything to the list, but today I made the time.

Today is Friday the thirteenth as you all know. It is a day where over 21 million Americans stay home due to superstition.

Superstition : n : beliefs or practices resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, or trust in magic or chance.

In Quebec, the number 13 is fifth on the list of superstsitions. Knocking on wood is number one.

The number 13 happens to be a number of luck. Whether good luck or bad luck depends on the person who beleives in its power. I heard today that Italians consider the number 13 as being good for luck and Americans consider it bad luck (at least most Americans do).

Until today, Friday the 13th has always been a day of good luck. This morning as I was scraping the ice off the windows of my car, a police car drove up beside my car on the street. He rolled down the window and asked me in French (being from Montreal) Is there was water in your car?

I wasnt sure if I heard him properly, so I asked him the repeat. Again, I didnt think I understood his question so I asked him to repeat again.

Still not sure of the question, I went to the window of his car and asked him to repeat again. This time I was sure he had asked me if I had water in my car. Well, at first I thought this was a joke. So I figured Id go along with this and check inside my car for water.

When I opened the front door, I could see a little bit of water and ice crystals on the floor under my mat. I responded, Yes to his question. Then he asked me if there was water on the floor of the back seat. I openned the back door and found about an inch of water. I looked at him with disbelief. He then told me that a water pipe had broken at 06h00 this morning and caused the damage.

The good thing about it is that if it had happened the morning before, it would had been worse. It was -22C (-8F for the Americans) and colder with the wind chill. Today its -2C (28F) and raining.

Aways look on the bright side od life – song from the Life of Brian and one of my personal mottos.

Keep on Giggling…
