I massaged a lady yesterday who had a rather large growth on her lower leg. It's part of my job to do a skin assessment, so I asked her about it.
She told me that having the growth removed kills people!
Apparently, she was twice scheduled to go into her doctor's office to have it removed, and on both occasions the doctor had a death in the family and had to cancel.
The third time she was going to go in, her own grandfather died.
She took it as a sign to leave the growth alone. In her words, "It's supposed to be there."
I generally consider myself to be a very rational, reasonable person, but this chain of events would make me hesitate, I believe. I think I'd schedule with a different doctor, maybe!
How superstitious are YOU, my readers? Would you have reacted the same way as my client, under these circumstances?
