Saturday Padiddle

Saturday Padiddle

While researching strange superstitions I came across this one in the Los Angeles Times: “If you see a car with a burned out headlight, say “padiddle” for good luck.”

Well, that’s a new one on me. I don’t know if it works as a pre-performance ritual, but if you should happen across a car with a burned out headlight on the way to the theater, saying “padiddle” certainly couldn’t hurt.

According to Wikipedia, the word padiddle means: “…a Canadian and American slang term for a vehicle with a burnt-out headlight or brake light or a game involving tallying up sightings of such vehicles.”

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
