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!
