Stage performers are notoriously superstitious. Never wish one "Good luck!", for that will surely invite disaster. Thus the phrase, "Break a leg!"

Before class Thursday I asked the instructor for information on the Adult Weekend Workshop. She seemed pleased that I'd signed up for it, and sought to reassure me by saying, "All you have to do us stay healthy and you'll do fine."

At the end of class I opted out of the last exercise because my right shin felt tight. By the time I got home my ankle was sore too. I took some ibuprofen and didn't give it much thought. Friday it seemed stiffer than usual but no worse. I was rudely awakened this morning by the sound of my neighbor's storm door banging in the wind, and when I got up I found my ankle very stiff and achy. So much for class this weekend.

I'm not one for superstition, but apparently I'm jinxed.
