Being raised in a Korean home, my parents (well, my mother) would deny being superstitious. However, she’d repeatedly tell me the following rules:
- Never whistle at night. That’s how demons find you;
- Always have two scoops of rice. It’s good luck; and my most favorite rule:
- Never talk about nightmares before noon. If you do, they’ll come true.
Well, I won’t tell you my nightmare from last night, but I hope to the good Lord above that a demon, with vampy teeth, and purple ooze coming out of his nose and mouth, doesn’t come after me.
