Truthful Tuesday, hosted by Thoughts and Theories, asks:
Whether tossing a pinch of salt over your shoulder or not walking under ladders, and whether you believe in the superstition or not, what superstition, if any, do you still observe?
Superstitions, this subject has been brought up in my posts for a while. The last time I’ve written about superstitions was in June 2014 with this post. That’s way before the pandemic, so in my dictionary, a long time ago.
I still believe in the same superstition – eye twitching – as when I wrote that post.
I was walking around the floor at work yesterday, trying to satisfy my Fitbit’s 250 hourly steps (yes, I’m religious about that), my right eye suddenly twitched. I stopped in my tracks. Now, is that good or bad? I wondered.
My left eye has always been the one to twitch but I’ve been ignoring it for a while, taking it as a sign of lack of sleep or stress or anxiety because these things have caused my left eye to twitch before. “I don’t have time for this,” I’ve been telling myself, “if anything bad happens, so be it.”
Deep down though, I know I have to tread carefully because although I tell myself I don’t believe in this superstition, somehow, I still do.
But my right eye twitched yesterday, is that good or bad? In my history with this superstition, the right eye is good but only time will tell what kind of things this eye twitch will bring.
