Calendar Day, the 13th

How superstitious are you? I am a bit, despite the scientific proof.
The 13 means nothing and the chance of something bad happening is the same as any other day.

Yesterday Dec 13 I took my SUV to Daytona to buy some construction material.
On a back road I was doing about 30 MPH when a car approached me on this two way road. . He was going at a legal speed.
About 50 ft from me he completely crossed over the center of the road and was heading for a head on collision with me. I had enough time to say WTF?
Within feet he redirected his car on his side of the road.
I think he was on the phone texting.

Nothing really happened. I will never remember the date.
But ifhe did hit me I would have heavily imprint it in my mind as THE THIRTEEN.
If an accident happens on any other date you'd forget the exact date except THE THIRTEEN.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

But it is Friday the 13th that is supposed to be bad luck. Any other day that falls on the 13th is just another day.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Im really superstitious, mainly Black cats. I will turn around if they cross the road. I lost 2 friends at different times after a black cat crossed in front of me. I try not to look at the color of a cat any longer, this is how bad it was with me. I've even owned a black cat to help, no help. Deep down I know its a lie, but still makes it hard. The number 13 is also a gang sign its the letter "M" in the alphabet. Many Mexican gangs use it as a moniker. MS13, Surenos 13, Eastside13, to name a few. Glad the day turned out for you though that could of been a horrible accident.
