Early last evening, I headed into Manhattan to meet up with a friend for dinner and some drinks. My train arrived to Grand Central and as soon as I exited the building, a monsoon like downpour started. I over heard a man say “I don’t think it has ever rained this hard in New York City before! This is insane.” As I stood there without an umbrella, wearing sandals and trying to hail a cab, I couldn’t have agreed with him more.
A man that was running in to catch a train in Grand Central stopped and asked if I would like to buy his umbrella for $5. I responded with a “HELL YES!” the guy handed over the umbrella in exchange for a 5 dollar bill. I am not sure what the purpose of this umbrella really was because I was already very much so soaked. I was finally able to hail a cab and once I got situated, the driver turned to me and stated that he will take me to my destination but he had a flat tire. Great, not only was it pouring outside but I also had to deal with a cabbie with a flat tire.
The rest of my evening went along decently well and I got home safely but it dawned on me on the train ride home that it was the eve of Friday the 13th. Was all of these misfortunes prepping me for the doom and gloom that Friday the 13th brings?
Being that it’s 2013, I think we can write off Friday the 13th as centuries worth of psychological mumbo jumbo. There is no direct link as to why Friday the 13th got a bad wrap but I can full heartedly express that my Friday has been rather dope!
Today, Friday the 13th I have become part of a group of bad ass entrepreneur kindred spirits. I’m officially a part of the hive, B:Hive to be exact. B:Hive is a coworking and retail space that is the most bad ass! I am easily distracted which doesn’t help as a blogger and pro-party thrower. A very stylish, positive, and bright workspace is what I definitely needed in my life and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the B:Hive family. Becoming a part of this great community not only has been a great way to end my week but also broke the superstition that nothing good can ever come about on Friday the 13th. That’s right Voorhees, i’ve won this round!
How are you spending your Friday the 13th? Do you buy into the superstitions or do you think it’s all rubbish?
