It's Friday the 13th, so I thought I'd have a little fun with superstitions.  I've got a list of RIDICULOUS superstitions about love and dating.  #1.)  Twist the stem of an apple while saying the names of the people you're interested in.  The name you're saying when the stem comes off is the one you'll marry.

 #2.)  If someone sweeps over your feet while sweeping the floor, you'll be single the rest of your life.

 #3.)  If a woman has hairy legs, she'll marry a rich man.  (See? I told you these were ridiculous.)

 #4.)  If a bride looks at herself in the mirror while wearing her veil before the wedding, the marriage will be unhappy.

 #5.)  If a bride wants her husband to be faithful, she should sew a swan's feather into his pillow.

 #6.)  If you get a knife as a present, it means your relationship will soon be severed.

 #7.)  If you drop a pair of scissors, it means your lover's being unfaithful.

 #8.)  When a woman burns bread or biscuits, it means her lover's mad at her.

 #9.)  Think of your love interest when you have the hiccups.  If your hiccups stop, then they feel the same way about you.  If they don't, forget it.

 #10.)  We all know this one:  Pick the petals off a flower . . . usually a daisy . . . repeating the phrase, ''He loves me, he loves me not.''  The last remaining petal is your answer.

 So, there you have it.  You probably heard some of those growing up.  What did I miss? What else should be included?  Do you believe in these?

Superstitiously yours,
