My superstitions? Easy, I will not walk under a ladder. I have no idea why this particular superstition stuck in my mind from childhood but it did. I will walk around it, take a different course but I will not, repeat not, walk under the dreaded ladder. I can step on cracks in the pavement, I can feel lucky about Friday the 13th, I do not freak out over black cats passing in front of me. I will even, if I have to, open an umbrella inside the house but ladders? Not a chance.
