The strange Mr. FaramanMore Like This
I hate the sound of a ringing phone. I hate it most when it rings in the morning. Morning phone calls are never good news. Good new waits for the sun to shine, but trouble is an early riser.
I am in the middle of my morning shave when the phone rings. I am listing to the "today" show on the television. Katie Couric tells me what day it is; though I do not like that she tells me today is Friday the 13th.im not superstitious about Friday the thirteenth, but many people are. We all have out superstitions, do we not? I, for example, always wear my baptismal cross. I have worn it ever day of my life, even though I no longer believe in God. I also put pennies in my shoes. This is a vary old superstition. I learned it from my grandmother, who had many such superstitions that she lived by. She would put one penny in each of my shoes when I was growing up. 'for good luck'; she would say. I have had pennies in my shoes for so long now I have a callus on each heel. I do not believe in it,
