#13 Unlucky

“Why did you get 13 tattooed anyway?” Jimmy asked me the day I got it done.
“Two reasons really mate. Firstly, as a rejection of superstition of all forms. Secondly, for luck”
He looked at me and sighed.
“Right. Yeah. Clever, I get it. And getting it done on Friday the 13th is to really emphasise it? Right? Yeah, well I think it’s dangerous”
I laughed at him.
Superstitious people are stupid.
The next day it started itching a bit more than usual.
Then these little red lines started appearing around it.
On the fifth day, they amputated the foot.
