As crazy as it sounds, I loathe red pens. Nothing is more disheartening than to get back the manuscript that you worked so hard on with red slashes all over it. It looks like it's bleeding or something!
Still, for me, it goes deeper than that. The color red (other than hair color) rarely holds any luck for me. I actually avoid it at all costs. I don't really know why, but it seems hostile and angry.
Is that my only crazy superstition? Not hardly. Aside from the semi normal of being careful to not break mirrors and throwing salt of my shoulder, I also have a few not so normal superstitions such as avoiding travel during full moons, arriving and leaving by the same door, and knocking on wood.
All of this got me to thinking, am I the only person this superstitious? Do you have any unusual superstitions?
