There are many superstitions in the world, vastly more than any one person can know. Friday the 13th being bad luck is a common one, and many consider the number 13 unlucky, enough so that some skyscrapers actually do not have a 13th floor.
As it turns out, I was born on the 13th day of the month, so I’ve been faced with this issue all of my life. I’ve decided that 13 is a lucky day. When you turn 13 on Friday the 13th, you’ve got to do something. I recall thinking that was pretty cool, and adding to the coolness was the premiere of a new network program, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., starring Stefanie Powers. Despite the inherent sexism of the title (this was 1968), having a star with my first name debuting a new show on my 13th birthday felt auspicious to me.
I guess I was a bit superstitious after all. Lucy the black cat says its all good luck.
May today bring good health and healing to us all. Cheers!
