You know those chain messages that tell you that if you don't do X within Y amounts of time to Z number of people you have bad luck? My child received one this morning. I was proud to observe that she had the good sense to think that it's stupid, and chose not to participate. I recall reading those when I was little and my heart was struck with some inexplicable fear - and then I realized that I couldn't possibly pass on bad luck to my friends. Or anyone, really. So I didn't play, either. Because she's right; it's stupid.
