Life is full of challenges

A black cat just crossed my path. Being a descendant of a superstitious, backward people, this immediately terrified me.

I considered backing up down the street, but this would have meant slamming into at least two cars behind me. I therefore cast an ancient Gaelic curse (“Dóite agus loisceadh ort!”) on them, and deflected the black cat bad luck.

The day thus repaired, I carried on merrily.

    I’d like to know what this ancient Gaelic curse was…

        I put it through the translator – that came out as something like “I want to go to the beach and party all day”… not sure what that has to do with black cats…

        ah, but do you have a phonetic prononciation? The letter/sound association in Gaeilge and Gàidhlig I swear was invented just to further annoy the English…

    Waaaait a minute. If you deflect a curse, aren’y you letting some other poor joe from Palookaville take the hit? That’s bad karma.

        FYI, my Warren Kinsella voodoo doll is almost complete. So watch out. Although, my Dalton McGuinty voodoo doll doesn’t seem to be working. Disappointing.
