Friday the 13th

Luckless day
Running late
All’s amiss
Outta this?
Milky spill
No refill
Broken toy
Tearful boy
Caught in rain
Bus ahead
Light is red
Bad hair day
Trip on vine
Pay the fine
What’s required,
Has expired
Forgotten key
Stung by bee
Dropped the phone
Moan and groan
So I pray
For Saturday!

Ever have one of those days?  I definitely have, although Friday the 13th, for me, is usually pretty uneventful.  Here are a few books that can provide comfort when nothing seems to be going your way.  They will remind you that it happens to everyone and tomorrow’s a new day.  They may even help you see the humor in it and turn your luck around!

    • Oh, NO!!! I have an okay day except for I have this bad habit of writing in WP and when I uploaded my image my writing disappeared!

  1. Fen got all nervous yesterday about the 13th, and was certain someone was going to drown at swim camp. It all worked out okay. Guess I’d better check out Pete the Cat!

  2. My mum and her mum were both born on Friday the 13th, so it’s a good day for my family! :) But living near Asia there is a lot of superstition here, and even the street we live on, there is no number 13! :)

    LOVE your poem, especially “Outta this?”
