And it's all my fault

Anytime I think of saying something that would be considered a "jinx", I have this little conversation with myself in my head on whether I should actually utter the thought aloud and risk karmic payback. I'm not a superstitious person but I usually end up keeping silent. The other day on the plane home from Ireland, I decided to take a chance:

"You know what's weird? I haven't been sick all winter."

After all, who gets a cold in June? *cough* *cough* So if things are a little slow around here today, that's why.
