In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Clumsy
Number 13 seems to be my unlucky number, something or the other goes wrong on this date. Today I planned to go out to run some errands, it didn’t happen.
I hit the wrong bypass button, the loud alarm frightened me, I thought it’s 13th October, I’m getting a warning not to go out. I listened to my inner feeling and stayed at home.
At lunch time while carrying my cup of tea I hit the edge of the table and spilled tea on the floor, table and the chair, was it the date that made me do it or was I clumsy and careless?
Sometimes silly superstitions makes us commit blunders, instead of admitting I was incompetent, I blamed it on the date.
I ended up convincing myself, I’ll have to do my outside work tomorrow!
