Friday the 13th Strikes Again

I’m normally not superstitious. But ever since a few years ago when I got not only one, but two flat tires on Friday the 13th, I’ve had a touch of Friday-the-13th-phobia. And all day I was expecting something to happen. Other than the sudden rain storm that started with seemingly little notice, I thought we were in the clear.

It wasn’t until we woke up this morning that we noticed the rainstorm brought down my prized pineapple plant. I’ll admit, the plant had already been leaning for quite a while due to the weight of the pineapple it was growing. But it was the rain that delivered its death blow.

Incidentally, this is the same pineapple we blogged about last May. I’m posting a photo we took last June just to illustrate how much it has grown since then.

Oh well, at the very least, we can still eat the pineapple the plant grew. Yum yum!

I got a very small taste of that pineapple, and I must say, the rain did you a favor. It was the most delicious pineapple ever. It was time for it to stop growing and become good eatin. Hence, Friday the 13th is not always unlucky. :O)
