So by now it's old news that Halle Berry ---a/k/a the only good 6 seconds in Swordfish--- is pregnant. But the latest gossip is that the actress is so "superstitious," she saved 35 failed home pregnancy tests
until she got the one delivering the good news:
We'd been trying for a while and I'm sort of superstitious so I saved all the negative tests in, like, a drawer... I don't know why but I did.
I know I only got a C+ in "Old Wive's Tales" at school, but I've never heard of the "saving bad news piss sticks superstition." Nevertheless, it raises many exciting questions:
- Is this superstition related solely to getting pregnant or does saving urine-stained sticks bring good luck in general?
- Does it have to be exactly 35 sticks to work or will the desired result arrive as long your bedroom reeks like a public restroom?
- Can the sticks be kept in an ordinary drawer or must they be stowed in another, more magical, compartment such as something that is "like" a drawer?
and perhaps most importantly,
- Why am I still thinking about having sex with Halle Berry when I know she's four months pregnant and preserves human waste?
Oh, right. Swordfish.
