1,085 - Having Good and Bad Luck

March 13th, 2015

Episode 213 of 489 episodes

Don’t be superstitious about listening to this episode on Friday the 13th. What could possibly go wrong? Slow dialog: 1:29 Explanations: 3:12 Fast dialog: 15:05 Cesar: I can’t catch a break. Everything seems to be going wrong these days. Olga: Maybe your streak of bad luck is because you did something unlucky. Cesar: What do you mean? Olga: Have you walked under a ladder or crossed paths with a black cat lately? Cesar: I don’t think so, but I’m not superstitious. I don’t believe breaking a mirror will bring me seven years of bad luck. Olga: Say what you will, but it doesn’t hurt to take some precautions, especially the way things have been going for you. Cesar: I don’t know... Olga: Here, you can borrow my rabbit’s foot and my four-leaf clover. I’ll go home to get you a horseshoe so you can hang it upside down over your front door. Cesar: I really doubt any of that is going to do me any good. Olga: You know what tomorrow is, don’t you? Cesar: The thirteenth? Olga: Friday the thirteenth. Do you really want to take your chances? Cesar: I guess not. Do you really think these good luck charms will help? Olga: We’ll know on the fourteenth, won’t we? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
