OMG! really? :w00t:

i broke my arm twice on Friday 13th.
On both occasions playing football.
First time was in the last year of primary school
Second time was in the last year of secondary school.
It was the same arm.
Broken in almost the same spot.

Freaky or what?

I was a bit worried about the flight but I was gonna go, anyway i have too much to do at home today, so i am not going.

How sad are people, life is full of bad luck moments, whether it is Friday 13th or not.
