42 Words- Myth

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

This week’s theme is …


Myth, I hear you cry, myth, but what myth, when, where and my response is, google it folks:

a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining a natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events.

a widely held but false belief or idea.


It’s my job to bust myths


Broken mirror is 13 years of bad luck

And did you bust it?

Well it’s been 11 years and nothing bad happened

Then why’s your arm in a sling and you’re supporting a black eye?

  1. I have always thought of myths and superstations as perhaps a creation to cause fears and doubts.
    Personally I have always thought 13 a good number. There were originally 13 zodiac signs, but the Babylonian’s were the ones to alter that count to 12. Trying to find out about that 13th sign I found that their might have actually been 14. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiuchus_(astrology)

    But then when we look up into the night’s sky, depending on where you are the pictures of ‘constellations’ are different for every culture. 😀

    Then again I’m not one to follow general Sun sign astrology either…

    1. I think all this stems from how we grew up. Some people have unshakable beliefs in all sorts of superstitions and most of their family members have similar views. I never did believe in any myths or signs. Though I do think people born in the same time of the year have certain similar character traits
