I’d never put a hat on the bed.
I hold my breathe when I drive past a cemetery.
When I see a nun in a habit, I pull on my buttons.
I’d never walk under an open ladder.
I always bring the cup to the kettle, never the kettle to the cup.
I never open umbrellas in the house.
When I can’t find my keys I turn a teacup over three times.
I’ll sew a button on a shirt while you wear it only if you chew on thread,
And I’d never let a black cat cross my path – unless it’s my own cat of course.
It’s not that I’m superstitious, I just do what my grandmother told me!
