Sometimes you might let your superstitious side get to you.
Why did I have to wear this shirt? It’s unlucky. It is. It must be.
Why did I not fold the corner of the sheet of paper over. Now I got yelled at about what’s on that paper.
Why did I have to pick up that penny? It was heads up! For others it’s tails down that makes it unlucky, but not me.
You’re not really superstitious, you’re rational, but little things might get to you, and it might be easier to blame those things so that you won’t have to blame yourself and admit fault completely.
