I'm not very superstitious.
As a kid I remember hours spent not stepping on cracks to avoid "breaking mama's back." I also carried around a rabbit's foot, but I think it was more because it was cool (dyed purple) than because I thought it was lucky. I had a boyfriend many years ago that had family in Croatia and he and his dad went to take money and other supplies during a full blown war. He had put a Cross on my rear-view mirror before he left. I'm not a religious person, but he was. I left it there until he returned home safely a month later. I wasn't messing with someone else's beliefs. That would just be WRONG.
As an adult I can't think of any superstitions that play a role in my life. No habits I do for luck or to prevent bad from happening. I imagine if I had always been unlucky that I may try to bring myself a little luck in anyway I could, or at least try and prevent the bad. As it is, I feel pretty lucky with all I have, and we all know it's a bad idea to mess with a good thing.
I had the opportunity to watch the preview episode for the new show Rubicon that starts on August 1. It's a thriller for anyone who loves action mystery films or shows. Based in New York, it follows an analyst who soon finds out that nothing is what is seems and his attempt to figure out what to do next. He is surrounded by quirky, superstitious co-workers of the highest intelligence who work to solve "codes" found in places you (at least I) would never expect to find them. They also have superstitions I've never even heard of. I didn't know to be afraid of a broom touching my foot (got you interested now, don't I). Are these shared only amongst the most intelligent of us?
I'm excited for this Rubicon to begin and will set my DVR to record it once it shows up on the guide. This is one you'll want to catch every episode of so as not to miss a single second of this fiction-thriller.
AMC’s newest original drama series “Rubicon” debuts on Sunday, August 1 with a special two-hour premiere from 8–10pm ET.
