I have a lot of superstitions. I'm clearly a nutcase sports fan, so yeah, naturally I do. I've written about them here and here and here. But thanks to Taylor and Helene, I'm here to tell you more crazy things I do in the name of superstition.
I constantly feel the need to knock on wood after saying anything even remotely positive about my teams.
Oh that was a great pass... knocks on wood
Offensive Line is killing it... knocks on wood (also, never said that last night)
What a great job by the water boy... knocks on wood
Basically my dogs think there is someone at the door at all times during a sporting event.
There is not a second that goes by in a game that I don't think that my actions directly impact what is happening on the field or court. Last night I sat up, laid down, sat back up, stood up, moved around, sat back down again... just trying to find some position that seemed to send the Cowboys good vibes. I obviously didn't find one.
But how about in everyday, non-sports life? Yeah, I've got them there too.
1. If I see a stuffed animal of some sort sitting by himself in a store, I have to buy him. Or at the very least, find him another stuffed animal friend to go sit with. What can I say, I've seen the Velveteen Rabbit one too many times.
2. I have a little lucky bear in my car. I got my driver's license on St. Patricks Day and my parents left a bear in my new car with a "lots of luck" shamrock tied around his neck. I've never gotten a speeding ticket when I've been in the car with that bear (knocks on wood) and I walked away, relatively unharmed when this happened.
So yeah, that bear will forever have a seat reserved for him in every car I own from here on out. He was the very first thing I grabbed out of that mangled little light blue car you see up there. He now wears a beautiful vintage handkerchief, that my dear friend Lisa gave me on her wedding day, which she had embroidered with my initials. Making him feel even more special, and like he is keeping me that much safer!
3. And now, I have a new favorite superstition....
Chalupa Batman and I always kiss at least twice. Before you vom on me, let me explain.
We were hanging out one day, and he kissed me and I joked... "Nooooo I want another one! I could never just have one of those! They are like potato chips!" So from there on out, we always kiss twice. Maybe it is for good luck, or maybe it is just because, well, kissing is fun... but either way! I think it is a pretty cute superstition to have.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah.. go ahead and judge.
Hiiii everyone. I'm Sarah and I'm smitten with a boy...
