In some countries today is known as Black Friday. The unlucky day for Hispanic and Greek culture is Tuesday the 13th. A day of bad luck for the Italian culture is Friday the 17th. 

I'm not one to tempt the fates, so I'm not quite sure on how to handle today, Friday the 13th. I can say I will not walk under a ladder; I will not look for a 13th floor, I will not go to gate 13 to catch my flight or sit in row 13. No, I'm not going to search for a 13th street or 13th Avenue, and I will not be the fourteenth guest to keep a dinner party from an unlucky fate. Even after all that, I think I'm still in trouble. Cindy McMullen has 13 letters!! According to Superstitions Old Wives Tales Beliefs and Misconceptions:

"If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil's luck . Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names."

I'm not adding my name to that list! OK, I've got it. For today, I will only answer to Cindy Lynn McMullen.
