Song Lyric Sunday – Superstition by Stevie Wonder

I hope you all know that sometimes even I struggle with my own themes. Today was a slog. I thought for sure that I would go through my library and find something, but I was about an hour into it when my son walked by. He asked what I was doing and I told him. This was the first song he mentioned and when we looked it up, sure enough, it mentions glass.

I’ve never really asked for help and I’m going to enjoy that someone else picked my song for me today. Besides, I don’t think you can go wrong with Stevie Wonder. It was a great listen on this beautiful Sunday morning.

As a side note, I just did this to myself last weekend. I was watching my favorite tennis player and he wasn’t doing very well, so I started crocheting. As soon as I did that, he started playing better. I told my husband that I couldn’t stop crocheting because it was helping him play better. I’m not sure I suffered (other than my wrists from crocheting so much) because I was able to work on a project and presumably help him with his game. I suppose the suffering came when he lost the match despite my busily crocheting hands.

Superstition is a crazy thing, but for some reason, I think we still all fall victim to it.

I hope you enjoy this classic!

The lyrics are in the video, so I won’t put them here. The song is written by Stevie Wonder.

#JustJoJan Day 25 – Prediction

The first thing I thought of when I read the prompt word was football, so bear with me, if you can.  I’m a huge football fan and I have a favorite college team and NFL team.  This year did not go as predicted for either team.  Not only that, every time I went to watch another team, I feel like they always ended up losing.

I think fans can get pretty ridiculous, but there is a Budweiser commercial that is pretty spot on, in my opinion.  We, as fans, literally believe that there are things that can be done to affect the outcome of the game.  My hubby just started watching football with us, and he doesn’t get it yet.

It doesn’t matter how far ahead your team is, you never say, “This game is over.  There’s no way they can come back!”  I blame him for the Cowboy loss to the Packers in the playoffs last year.  At some point, when the Cowboys were ahead, he said something similar to that and I reminded him that we don’t say that, no matter how far ahead we are.  I also reminded him that the Packers are famous for ridiculous come-backs.  Even having the conversation affected the game, in my opinion.  He’s getting better, but he still has a hard time.  This year, he started asking for permission.  “Is it okay if I say they’re going to win now?”

Well, no, but now that you’ve said it, they’re probably going to lose, so thanks!

I was busy one Monday night during this year’s football season and actually forgot the Cowboys were playing (don’t judge me).  When I finally turned it on, they were losing.  I sent a text to my friend that I hadn’t missed much and literally within minutes, the Cowboys scored two touchdowns.  Her husband told her to tell me to keep watching because I obviously affected the game just by turning it on.

Like it says at the end of the commercial, “It’s only weird if it doesn’t work”, and in my opinion, it works more than you even realize!

I wanted to include the commercials in my post and came across another one, so I’ve included them both for your viewing pleasure.
