Making a right turn, the sun streamed into the car startling me and prompting K into making a statement about perhaps winter being on its way out. My first impulse was to shush him and wonder why he would make such a statement. I wanted no one jinxing my secret happiness at the rather warm days we have had.
Of course that then triggered a barrage of thoughts on jinxes and such. Am not big on secrecy. I usually make it known if I have an interview or if there is something I am looking forward to. Perhaps it is my way of jinxing the jinx? In recent times, I have wondered if there is any truth to it. If perhaps by holding something close to my chest and not breathing a word of it till the deed was done would have actually ensured that it happened? I will never know.
I am curious though. What do you think? Is there merit to the fear of jinxes or are you thinking Bah! humbug!!
