what superstitions do you follow, maybe do believe in, but find you just do or avoid?

i am a big Murphy's Law person
like i feel that if i say something good out loud, it will stop happening
example.. i say "she has not tantrumed in weeks" then the next five days in a row - she has huge tanrum meltdowns
also knock on wood when i say good things out loud
maybe i should learn to not speak of good things

  • Well, I am a nurse and at work we never, ever, say things like, "It sure is a quiet night." It's like tempting fate. As soon as someone says it all heck breaks loose. LOL
