Frida the Thirteenth

Plot

Frida is very superstitious. So she is alarmed when she joins a new class and finds she is the thirteenth in a class of twelve students. She thinks this will bring bad luck, and many of her interactions with the other students do seem to bring unlucky consequences. Then Frida finds out there was another student who had been absent from school before she joined the class. So she was not the thirteenth after all, and all the ‘bad luck’ was nothing but coincidence.

  1. Frida is very superstitious, and when she joins a new class of twelve students she is the thirteenth. She believes this will bring bad luck, and many of her interactions with the other students seem to bring unlucky consequences. Finally Frida learns that there was another student all along who had been absent from school since before she joined the class, so she was never the thirteenth, and all the ‘bad luck’ was nothing but coincidence.

  2. Law of attraction. Frida believed she would attract bad luck because she thought she was the 13th, and so bad luck was attracted.
