Very Superstitious

The image above may just be of a black cat to some, but to my friend Janice it is an image of something so frightening that it will cause her to make an illegal u-turn in the middle of a road
just to avoid it.
I have another friend that believes that if you compliment someone, for example you tell them they have a beautiful baby, and then you do not touch the baby then the baby is going to fall ill. I think I may have fallen victim to this curse the other day when a coworker told me they loved my shirt, only to have the button pop off after she didn't touch it to rid me of the curse! Okay, admittedly it was probably the fact that I've had way to many pieces of birthday cake lately, but you never know!
Crazy superstitions are also the reason that my friend Christine and I have vowed never to buy antique pieces for our homes. We are convinced that the previous owner may have loved them more than we do and may come back to visit them.
What seems crazy to some may seem perfectly normal to someone else! I would love to hear everyone else's stories about their superstitions!

LOL! I love my black cat :)

My superstition is to touch my nose when I say something the exact same time as someone else. I've been doing it as a child (but not too sure what the superstition really is) :)

What a truly interesting story! I am wracking my brain and can't think of any superstitions I have but it is true, some quirky things one person finds completely insane are perfectly normal to another. Fun read!
