Fear of Friday The 13th


Did you know that Fear of Friday the 13th is called two of the biggest words I've ever seen? They are paraskavedekatriaphobia + friggatriskaidekaphobia. Thank goodness for copy and paste! Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13.

I didn't even realize it was Friday the 13th until I looked at my calendar just now. I am not superstitious since my birthday is September 13th and I have had a few fall on a Friday. Nothing bad has ever happened. As for today, so far so good! Hope the same holds true for you too. Rosemary

I love Friday the 13th.
We are going out for Valentine's Day tonight in nyc instead of tomorrow!
We got married on the 13th and it's been 18 years of bliss!

Blah Blah and Ha Ha - I was born on Friday the 13th. I prove them all wrong.

I didn't realize it was Friday the 13th either, Rosemary, til my husband called this morning to say his car had broken down on a job an hour from home! Ok, I know the starter or alternator or whatever it turns out to be could have kicked it any old day but, then again. . . who knows?

I was determined to have a good Friday the 13th...and found (and purchased) my very own copy of Life's Little Instruction Book. :-)

Thank you for your "blog"...wish we had a better term for this form of communication, it sounds so unappealing...especially when describing Content in a Cottage.
