11/3/08 Superstition

Is it bad luck when this black Kat crosses your path?

Observe this sweet playful scene of Julian and Katrina playing together, until he ventures into typical brother tactics. He'd have gotten pummeled by Gabriel for this.

But don't be fooled, dear reader. Notice the shift in reaction: first the characteristic screech of protest, then the quick glance to Mom...and then bursting into very convincing tears, far exceeding any actual injury or fear. The tears lasted a matter of seconds, after Mom investigated and didn't buy the act. However, notice how Julian anticipates getting into trouble, as usually he's immediately blamed for Katrina's crying. And you can see why!

Maybe black Kats are bad luck, at least for older brothers.
