Second Post of the Day

I just read Shannon's blog and had to do one more post.

Dominic came home from school the last day before spring break and said that his friend told him that if you go into the bathroom at night and turn off all the lights and say "Bloody Mary" three times, then Bloody Mary would appear in the mirror and throw a baby at you. If you don't catch the baby, then you will die when you are 13. And, by the way, did I know that Bloody Mary was a queen who got her head cut off?

What the hell are they learning in first grade these days?

Anyway, to prove him wrong, I went into the bathroom, turned out all the lights, and said "Bloody Mary" three times. Nothing happened. No baby. I told him as much. (By the way, what happens if you catch the baby? Do you get to keep it?) He said I didn't shout Bloody Mary at the top of my lungs, so it didn't work.

That's me. Always doing thing wrong...

Hmm, I'll have to try it out since I spend my days alone, and no one would be around to hear me screaming at the top of my lungs. Now I've got to catch up on what I've missed while I was out of town.

I've tagged you.

hahaha we used to do that too but we were usually to scared to say it the third time... i don't remember anything about catching a baby though... hmm... that must be new.

For the 'old school' Bloody Mary curse, you have to say "Bloody Mary" 3 times at the stroke of midnight for it to work.

Like Jules, my girlfriends and I never said it the 3rd time, so I can't guarantee that it's true ;)

Okay, next time I'm up at midnight I'm going to do it AND video tape it!
