You may have recently read my weekly e-newsletter about superstition. If you haven’t, the next couple paragraphs will fill you in on where this story is going.
Superstition should have been my middle name. In high school, I wore a lucky pair of socks for every basketball game, had a lucky number that I wore on a necklace (if you are wondering, it’s the #3) and our team even had a lucky bus driver for away games. I’m sure you are asking yourself, “Self, that basketball team must have won state!” Well, I hate to burst your bubble but we we’re only a little over .500 and didn’t make it past the first round of our district tournament. BUT, we sure had a lot of fun trying to keep our “luck” in check.
As I’ve matured in age, I realize that luck has very little to do with success, but hard work sure does. Ozark understands, just like our customers, we must work hard to keep our goldfish and koi inventory full, freight costs down and health of our fish in tip-top shape.
With Friday the 13th approaching, fear among us common folk runs rampant. But in theory, there is really nothing for us to be afraid of. I recently read there are actually fewer motor vehicle accidents on Friday’s that fall on the 13th than any other Friday’s. Apparantly, we all must stay home.
