I’m Not Taking Any Chances …

Coming back from the hospital … a small, dark animal ran across the road in front of me. Black cat, I thought. My mind went instantly to the black cat that ran across the road when we went to Virginia to see Skip’s mother.
I thought how I had locked the keys in the vehicle … in my mind I could see Skip and I standing there in the cold, pouring rain. That same morning I was walking to the pickup … the gate key fell from my hand in the dark. I was sort of … slinging my hand as I walked. I couldn’t find the key … in the pouring rain.
That night I thought about that black cat and how I try never to be superstitious. I didn’t make an ‘X’ on the windshield. Look what happened … pouring rain … locking keys inside vehicle, losing key.
Well, this evening … I didn’t take any chances … I made an ‘X’ on the windshield! I made it home safely … all should be well this time.
I think just to be safe … I will mark an ‘X’ when I see a black cat cross the road in front of me … I’m not superstitious … I’m just not taking any chances.

Nope, not taking any chances … so much has happened lately in my life. Just to be safe … I will mark an ‘X’ whenever a black cat crosses in front of me 🙂 I’m really not superstitious … only cautious!
