Lucky duck (69/365) #blogaday MARCH SOL 13/31

“Luck be a lady”

“Lucky number 7”

“The luck of the draw”

Since today is Friday the 13th, I was thinking about luck and unlucky things. Superstition is something I don’t believe in but many people get spooked by various coincidences.

The same is true with good luck – people wear mismatch socks every time they watch their team play because the team one the first they did. Sometimes men still have a pretty woman blow on the dice before rolling them.

My car showed this a few days ago and it made me think of a friend in high school who every time it was 11:11, she would say “make a wish.”

There are many times that are palindromes (9:09, 3:33, 5:55, etc) so I’m not sure what was so special about 11:11 that she wouldn’t do the same ritual with the other times.

I guess I was in for some luck due to my car mileage being all ones..?

  1. Your post drew me in with your reflections on how people think about luck (good and bad). I too had a friend who would say “make a wish” at 11:11. That memory you triggered made me smile. Thanks!
