I know this sounds weird in a knitting blog lounge, but, has anyone jinkzed anyone lately? I know I have to my sister and BFF's. But has anyone really jinkzed someone lately?:roflhard: :rofl:

This guy on the forum takes no offense, but I'd like you to understand.
Growing older is mandatory but growing up is optional.
Enjoy life one stitch at a time and remember no one is ever too old to have fun.
Isn't jinxing some one when you both "say" the same thing at the same time? I don't think that would ever happen when posting to a forum like this one.
A similar event is when two different members submit posts at nearly the same time. We call it cross posting and it only matters when the following post asks or answers the a same question as the preceding post.
I think Jinxing only works well in spoken conversation, but it is still fun to find that someone else was thinking nearly the same thing as you and especially when that happen at about the same time. :cool:

My two daughters used to jinx each other (and me too, if they got the chance), and then the person who jinxed the other one had to say their name 10 times before the other one could speak again. Does it still work that way? (My daughters are now 23 and 27 years old.)
