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
