Conversations in a library: Girls are bad luck
So recently I’ve started working the after-school club at work. Last week’s theme was scurvy pirates. While discussing who made flags, I mentioned that sailors considered women bad luck on board ship.
A little while later, a young boy yelled “girls are bad luck” during one of the games.
I , in full pirate costume (and yes I looked awesome), stood over him and said “I am not bad luck. I am female and NOT bad luck.”
The child blinks at me and says “Well, ok then.”
Stopping bad habits, one child at a time.
