Season 1 Episode 16 TOW Two Parts, Part

ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.

RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.

ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.

RACHEL: I've never done that.

Superstitions...

Monica: He- he pooped in my shoe.
Phoebe: Which one?
Monica: Those cute little black ones I wear all the time.
Phoebe: No, which one? The right or left? 'Cause the left one is lucky...

Whether consciously or unconsciously we all have our own superstitions. Baseball players have their routine before getting into the batters box... Ever watch Nomar Garciapara's ritual? If not you should. Kids avoid cracks on a sidewalk in fear of breaking their mothers back. I will give Princess In Training a bath every night in hopes she sleeps through the night.

I was researching some superstitions last night and came upon a website that listed many superstitions/old wives tales. Here are a few that caught my eye!

Spit on a new bat before using it for the first time to make it lucky (What the ritual before you hit isn't enough?)

To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave. (Is that why they keep coming back?)

If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it. (Better walk backwards)

To cure a cough: take a hair from the coughing person's head, put it between two slices of buttered bread, feed it to a dog, and say, "Eat well you hound, may you be sick and I be sound." (Does my doctor know this?)

Cows lifting their tails is a sure sign that rain is coming. (So it really isn't them swatting the flies?)

If the bottom of your right foot itches, you are going to take a trip. (Itch darn it... Itch)

If the palm of your right hand itches it means you will soon be getting money. (Now you itch darn it... ITCH)

A knife as a gift from a lover means that the love will soon end. (And then that lover will be a new resident of a 6x6 foot cell)

If you catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn you will not catch a cold all winter. (If only I new this sooner... next year you will catch me under a tree)

It is bad luck to see an owl in the sunlight. (It's a good thing they are nocturnal)

Seeing a spider run down a web in the afternoon means you'll take a trip. (If the bottom of my right foot itches does that mean I can take 2?)

A watermelon will grow in your stomach if you swallow a watermelon seed. (Angela did have a reason to be weary after swallowing that seed)

The number of Xs in the palm of your right hand is the number of children you will have. (I bet you checked your hand)

Do you have a superstition... fess up you know you do!

Ok, so right before (and I mean RIGHT BEFORE) I read about the itchy foot, my right foot started to itch!

I'm going to Hemet tonight! HAHA

I just hope it means a trip as in a vacation, and not a trip as in a fall!

I'm sure I have some superstitions, I just can't think of any!

Well, I sure hope the number of Xs in the palm of my hand doesn't mean I'm having that many kids, lol. 3 will be enough for me, thanks!

Tena said...

those are great!! I don't think I have any superstitions! Wait, I do knock on wood sometimes!

:-) Those are too funny! But now I'm a little worried. My grandma has always told me not to throw hair into the trash can because someone could put a curse on you. But when I flush it down the toilet all I get is a clogged drain! And I did check for x's on my hand! lol
