    I'm just a real bundle of superstition.
    Well first of all, I'm always knocking on wood. If I make a remark (or even think) about the shift being slow while I'm at work I have to knock on wood. I also feel compelled to do this when I'm taking about good progress that a patient has made.

    I wouldn't call this superstition per say, but it is definately a quirk.
    I'm also very funny about karma (or my own version of karma). I never regift. If I get a gift that I have no use for, I give it away to send it back out in the world, but I never give it as gift for a specific ocasion, just as a "surprise" present to somebody. Of else I give it to goodwill. I just think the intent of giving the gift in the first place has to match the intent when passing it on.

    Also, when I feel good fortune has been given to me, I have to satify myself that I have passed on the same thing to another.

    I'm not superstitious. I'll say the shift is slow out loud and think nothing of it until I get yelled at by my co-workers. I don't believe that by simply stating a fact I can control the
    Fate of my patients. Not being superstitious definitely has its advantages in that I rarely gamble because I know the odds are against me. The only time I'll buy more than one ticket for any draw is when it is a charity or fundraiser. Then I consider it more charity than gambling. Even when the lottery gets into the 10 million plus range ( no income tax on lotto winnings in Canada) I still never buy more than one ticket. I believe that if a higher power wants me to win then I'll win with just the one ticket and buying two is a total lack of faith not to mention a tax on those who can't do math.

    If they come I'll get you to pick the lotto number. If you want I'll even buy more than one ticket. Then we can go to the track, my treat you just have to pick the winners. :roll

    I am a little supersticious about things. Like sometimes I knock on wood and if a black cat crosses my path I'll have bad luck, which is really bad since my kitty is black lol.
